“Stunning”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 October 2013

We visited the Pergamum ruins later in the afternoon, there were very few people there and the views were stunning, the light being perfect for photography. We loved this place .

“A lovely site to see”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 October 2013

A busy sight but well worth a visit. The medical centre was interesting as our guide explained the workings of it. Do soak up the atmosphere.

“Incredible”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 October 2013 via mobile

Incredible
A must see if you are in Izmir or western Turkiye
The theater will be most memorable for me as I descended and climbed two times looking for my wife
A word of advice bring 2 way radios
As I am the adventurous type and tend not to stay with the group

“Worth a Visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 July 2013

Even with the altar in berlin this site is worth a visit. Stay over in Bergama. It's a nice town and don;t miss the museum or the Asklepion.

“Rich ruins well worth the visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 July 2013

We visited three different Pergamum archaeological sites: The Acropolis, the Aesclepion, and the Bergama Archaeological Museum. In addition we found a Roman bridge and stopped briefly at the Serapis Temple (Red Courtyard).

I have posted separate reviews for the Acropolis, the Aesclepion, and the Bergama Archaeological Museum which I will not repeat here. Instead I focus on the combination of the sites,

A visit to ancient Pergamum is best done as a combination of visiting all three sites. In the town of Bergama here also is a Roman bridge with an unusually wide main arch that is worth finding. If one is interested in later Christian developments a visit to the Red Courtyard (Serapis Temple) should be added.
