Dont miss seeing this theater while visiting the ruins....its on the side of the mountain and not something that's standing at the top and readily visible. While at the top, the views are AMAZING. But because it's so steep, don't look down to the stage while walking down....once you're on the stage and look up, it doesn't seem so steep.... More

Not in the best shape, so watch your step. The views over the valley below are tremendous. Part of the whole Pergamum complex.

The Theatre at Pergamon is well worth the visit when visiting the ruins. It is perched on the mountainside and boasts a spectacular view. Lots of walking to get down to the 'stage'. All in all - Pergamon is a fantastic site and well worth the visit.

This is a stunning theatre but very steep and not easy for those of a more nervous disposition or the less agile.

We stopped here on an RSD Travel coach tour and didn't have time to walk down the hill to explore the theatre fully. Its location is dramatic, though, and makes good photos from the hilltop. According to our guide it's the steepest raked Roman theatre surviving, and friends have looked at my photos and said "I couldn't sit there!"

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.
