If you visit the Acropolis make sure you have at least looked at the map and you know where all the points of interest are located. There are maps as you enter the ruins at the top of the ramp. Several people have told me they went to the ruins but did not see certain areas including the theatre. This... More

It is a long walk to the top with very narrow steps and nothing to hold on to, but it is so worth the effort. My theory is don't look down while standing, but if I sit down and take in the views I am just fine. The views are amazing and the story is very interesting. Go Nd be... More

No worries, you will definitely love the place. Just sit back and imagine, relive, feel...Watch the steps! It might be a little bit difficult if you hurry. Breathtaking place. Hope you will like it as we did.

Care should be taken when exploring the Theater as the gradient look deceptively gradual from afar. The best view from afar is at the edge of the Acropolis and while you can see that the depth is awesome, the gradient of the theatre seatings does not look so steep. The entrance of the theatre is from the Acropolis through a... More

This theatre faces the cliff of the hill, and its very good view from here. This locates on the way of pergamon ruins, and near to pergman underground rooms. One of the best place to visit and photoshoot

I'm well informed by my son that when you sit at the top and people sing on the 'stage' below the acoustics are amazing and you can hear everything quite clearly. If you're not going to walk up it, make sure you go down the tunnel to sit at the top of the... More

The entrance to the theatre of Pergamon is from the upper Acropolis, this way you will find yourself on the upper rows of the Theatre. You can climb all the way down to the scene - it is if you do not suffer of vertigo, because the height is remarkable and there are no railings. But the views are astonishing... More
