There are two ways to access Pergamon and it is more than just the theatre! If you have a good head for heights there is a cable car. If like me you have vertigo then it is accessible by road but that has some breath stopping drops on it too! The theatre itself is huge and well preserved but that... More

It was raining and not many peoples in the ruins. The theater locates on the steep cliff looking down to the town of Bergama. The view tells me the encient time of Bergama once it was a great town.

If you suffer from vertigo this may prove a daunting visit. The views are amazing and the 15 Tl (Rtd) to get the ski lift up to the site is well worth it. A highly recommended site

This is probably one of the best ancient city I'd visited during my trip in Turkey, the theater on a steep hillside is really breathtaking and I'm pretty sure you won't be able to find such theater else where in the world.

This is not a separate attraction but rather part of your admission to the Pergamon complex. We did not feel it necessary to explore this particular architectural feature but marvelled from above and took some photos. If you have the time and a level of physical fitness, setting foot on the tiers of seats would definitely qualify you for bragging... More

The theatre of Pergamon is unquestionably the highlight of the ruins and is in itself worth making a visit and paying the admission fee (it cannot be accessed separate to the ruins of Pergamon). After catching the cable car to the summit and exploring the remnants of the Acropolis temple complex, find the signs to the stairs and tunnel leading... More

The Roman theatre at Pergamon is accessed as part of the Akropolis site. It is not a separate place to visit. It is in every good condition on the steep hillside. Very little to see of the stage or entrance areas. But very impressive due to completeness of the seating and the amazing location. Wow!

The most precipitous theatre in the empire built into the cliff on one side of the mountain atop which sits Pergamon. We have made two visits but each time I judged myself too old, tired and scared to attempt to descend and even more the necessity to ascend again. Best viewed from the terrace to the right of the theatre.

Well preserved theatre on a hill with a stunning view of the landscape. A bonus is that the Pergamon site is less busy than Ephesus. Go early in the morning to avoid the midday heat
