The theatre of Pergamon is unquestionably the highlight of the ruins and is in itself worth making a visit and paying the admission fee (it cannot be accessed separate to the ruins of Pergamon). After catching the cable car to the summit and exploring the remnants of the Acropolis temple complex, find the signs to the stairs and tunnel leading... More

The Roman theatre at Pergamon is accessed as part of the Akropolis site. It is not a separate place to visit. It is in every good condition on the steep hillside. Very little to see of the stage or entrance areas. But very impressive due to completeness of the seating and the amazing location. Wow!

The most precipitous theatre in the empire built into the cliff on one side of the mountain atop which sits Pergamon. We have made two visits but each time I judged myself too old, tired and scared to attempt to descend and even more the necessity to ascend again. Best viewed from the terrace to the right of the theatre.

Well preserved theatre on a hill with a stunning view of the landscape. A bonus is that the Pergamon site is less busy than Ephesus. Go early in the morning to avoid the midday heat

The Pergamum amphitheater is located on the archaeological site of the ruins of same name and is extremely impressive in its size and scale. At the very least, it offers a beautiful photo opportunity set against expansive views of Bergama and the surrounding valley but is open to those who are willing to experience the venue in its natural, unprotected...

This is the steepest theatre in antiquity. It is built on the steep side of citadel hill and has 87 tiers, divided horizontally into 3 sections by landings. It could seat 10,000 people. It is not for the feint hearted. There are no safety fences or rails but the views are spectacular.

This is probably one of my favorite amphitheaters in Turkey, as it is situated high on the hill with an amazing view! Do be careful if you are to walk down the steps as they were not built to code 😊 @instabuilt

Sitting high on a hill from which to see all of Bergama, this archaeological site is perfect for a visit. Antique Theatre is located completely different than other buildings of the same kind, that is built into the slope of the hill.

This is one of the most impressive site I have ever seen. The hill is very steep and the view from the top of the theater is great.
