Like most ancient sites in Turkey you need to use your imagination or have a good guide book if you don't have a local guide to show you around. The view over the countryside from the top is stunning. Wear good shoes as the ground is very uneven. Hat, sunscreen, water essential.

One of the most beautifull ancient city in Turkey, don't miss it! Hugh city on a hill, it takes a long time to see it. Begin with the top of the hill and continue down the hill. Take a lot of water in summer. Really a wonderfull place!

The perfect destination for a day trip. I totally fell in love! The acropolis is on an unexpectedly wide area with hidden places to discover. I walked for 4 hours in every possible direction and wasn't able to see all of it. I spent a lot of time taking pictures though. The scenery is impressive and beautiful.

Very similar to the Acropolis in Athens, but much, much smaller in size. The Amphitheatre there is extremely steep....couldn't imagine how the people at that time can walk up and down those steps safely.

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. We got the gondola up and then... More

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
