An awe inspiring spectacle. The Turks have a different approach to their antiquities, being able to scramble around ancient monuments unconstrained by rules and regulations is really refreshing. The amphitheatre was the star attraction. If you stand in the central spot on the 'stage' you can talk normally and others on the top row (in my case my family having... More

The Acropolis was really interesting and very photogenic - as is the whole site. But you have to be fit to get around the whole place, on top of everything else!

Visited in March 2015. The Acropolis in Bergama is a must if you are visiting Western Turkey. During my first visit with Trafalgar we only saw the upper city. This is because the bus have to park at the top and there is no time to fully explore the site. This time we went alone and took the cable car... More

The wildflowers, the history, the views! So many amazing ancient roman sites along the Turkish coast, but this is probably my favourite. Take your time to move away from the tour buses and explore the whole site. Take some lunch and sit on the side of the hill, enjoy the view and imagine the wonder this site must have had... More

It's a very interesting and must see place in Turkey. You will be amazed by the historical architectural built during those ancient time, especially like the theatre perched on the city's highest point, which has a breath taking view! Sites include the Altar of Zeus, Temple of Athena, the library, arsenals and temple of Trajan, which reflects the history well.

Excellent place for a history lover. However, you should manage your time: the hill is steep and requires time and effort for climbing up. There is an opportunity for the lasy ones or for those short of time: you can take a cable car (approaching the hill you will see the road sign). It costs 20 TL. There are several... More

The Pergamum (Bergama) archeological site is full of Bible history. It is eaily accessible by cable car. The site consists of Sanctuary of Athena, the Temple of Traianus, Royal Palaces and a large open theatre. The view is spectacular. In short, it is a "must-see" place in Turkey.
