High on a hilltop, the Acropolis was a strategic city and its position now meant it was not entirely destroyed by enemies, though earthquakes have cretainly wreaked their havoc. Wear sturdy shoes for the ancient sites and hire an audio guide and you'ff be set for a marvellous adventure.

An outstanding superposition of Anatolian, Hellenistic and Roman cultures. This is a breathtaking archaeological site in an exceptional location. Pergamon was one of the undisputed centres of culture and learning of the antiquity, and you can really feel it here.

Ancient city on top of a hill. Wowed by the temple, theatre and mosaics. I can't give it five stars as the best bits including the Temple of Zeus are in the Pergamon museum in Berlin. The local museum in the town is also nice to visit.

This is an amazing visit. The city that existed here is on the top of a very tall mount that drops off sharply on all sides. Although the ruins are not as plentiful as Ephesus, or Aphrodesias, they are awe inspiring considering the height of the city, and the engineering that had to go into their construction. It is a...

The Pergamun acropolis does not get the flood of visitors that Ephesus receives, allowing a peaceful, connected experience. The panoramic view is spectacular, and the ruins interesting.

Beautiful ancient city ruins. We really enjoyed our visit and virtually had the place to ourselves. Our guide, Nazim Uzun of Tours by Locals was very knowledgeable and brought the place to life.

The Acropolis is one of the major ruins you visit at Pergamon. Though most of it has been excavated, there are sufficient remnants from which you can still imagine an incredible and dominating structure. Be sure to walk around, explore, and enjoy the views of the surrounding valley as there are plenty of photo opportunities here.

It is located on a high hill. The city center is just under your feet as if. Historical and important past is also magical. It should be visited minimum once in the life.

The history of the region is rich and the ruins are fantastic. I'd recommend using the audio tour as they point out some of the less obvious but more interesting bits and pieces. Also take the time to walk off the tour and just explore. The area is stunning.
