Unless you are really into archaeology, I'd suggest you skip this town entirely and go to Selcuk/Ephesus. There is so much more to see there.

If you are visiting Ephesus, buy your Aegean Pass here, it will pay for itself with the Ephesus sites alone. Like most sites in Turkey, they want you to pay for their audio guide so either bring a guidebook or download your own audio guide so you know what you are looking at.

The ruins speak for themselves ... a great archaeological site but, to be honest, not as good as its cracked up to be, if you have seen other such sites in Turkey, Tunisia etc. However the organisation of the site by the authorities is bad. No map is supplied with your ticket. There are both stone paths and wooden boardwalks,... More

Wonderful 2 hours can be spent looking at this wonderful ancient city which has amazing views of Bergama. If you stay at the bottom of the hill - we stayed at the Hera Hotel in the old part of the town - you can walk up the hill or take the cable car.

We walked around the hill studying theater. bath.forum and the water system trying to figure out the town in the old great days. The view is gorgeous. Be careful "carpet catch sales" near the gate.

A well kept historical site which dated back to 2nd BC. The Cable car ride to the hill top of this ancient city has a great view over Bergama city. It requires a bit of walk up slope. Wearing comfortable & good gripped shoes will be helpful. Take time to walk the entire circle of this hilltop ancient city. The... More

I have visited the sites at Ephesus, Aphrodisia, Hierapolis among others and while they are very impressive none can match the location of the Acropolis at Bergama. I suffer a bit from vertigo but I was determined not to let that put me off and from getting the ski gondola (15 Tl rtd - although there is a road up)... More

One of the key historic places in Turkey, Hellenistic period. Phaenomenal location up a hill, city must have been very important a mere 2000 years ago. Pity the Germans carried off the altar (we know where they keep it, it is in Berlin...). A must for travelers interested in antiquity.

I found this to be an amazing place. The view from the top is incredible. If you love ancient history, this place is simply amazing. Loved the cable card ride to the top also.

Perched atop a high, steep-sided hill, my group and I took the cable car up. The ride up takes five minutes and is worth it for the views alone. Our tour guide related to us the famous story of how 9th-century German excavators were allowed to remove most of this famous building to Berlin, leaving only the base behind. Great... More
