Incredible place to visit. Tons of history. Obviously important Bible history [Pergamum] and site of Temple of Zeus, now in Berlin.

Just spectacular !! I know some of its ruins is displaying in other country, but one part of this site cannot be moved and it is just spectacular. I am talking about the largest theatre in ancient history, built along the hillside and can hold up to 25,000 person. It is impressive how Romans can built this place some 2000... More

Take the tram up, but you MUST walk down. There are spectacular ruins along the walk down that must be seen, including a huge gymnasium and beautiful mosaics.

The acropolis in Bergama is located on a towering hilltop above the city and are truly spectacular. The theatre in particular is very unique with it's steep incline and view over the valley. While the ruins are on a smaller scale than Ephesus, it some ways they are much more impressive given the location on the hill top. It is... More

I brought a tour group here and they were not disappointed. First, the view is fabulous - you can see a hint of the Aegean Sea. The cable car ride is an experience - steep and scenic. On the top is the Temple of Hadrian, the theatre, and altar to Zeus. For those who are interested in the history, particularly... More

On my last visit to the ruins I was pleasantly surprised to see the wooden walk way they have built. It makes the walk up to the top... More

But I just wish that I hadn't seen the rest of the parts that SHOULD be here, in the Pergamon Museum in Berlin :( Bring them back to their home!

Wow! Our visit started with a leisurely walk through the quaint township of Bergama. The locals are friendly and welcoming so this was very enjoyable. We walked to the Cable Car - no queues so we were straight on. It was a super windy day but the cable car was fine and provides a birds eye view of the remnants... More
