“A perfect place to visit”
Reviewed 30 June 2013

This theatre faces the cliff of the hill, and its very good view from here. This locates on the way of pergamon ruins, and near to pergman underground rooms. One of the best place to visit and photoshoot

“Amazing - and it works!”
Reviewed 31 March 2013

Wow! Have never seen anything like it! I'm well informed by my son that when you sit at the top and people sing on the 'stage' below the acoustics are amazing and you can hear everything quite clearly. If you're not going to walk up it, make sure you go down the tunnel to sit at the top of the theatre!

“The Theatre of Pergamon”
Reviewed 18 March 2013

The entrance to the theatre of Pergamon is from the upper Acropolis, this way you will find yourself on the upper rows of the Theatre. You can climb all the way down to the scene - it is if you do not suffer of vertigo, because the height is remarkable and there are no railings. But the views are astonishing and well worth the effort.

“Acrophobia may induce Vertigo.”
Reviewed 29 July 2012

The theater on the side of Pergamum's acropolis is the steepest raked Hellenistic theater in the world. The cavea of the theater could seat 10,000 people, in 80 rows of seats, divided into three sections by two diazomas. The stone used in its construction is andesite. Because it was originally a Hellenistic theater, there was no permanent stage, and people sitting on the cavea could see outside and beyond the playing area to the valley and the famous Asclepion on the plain below (a good view if the play got boring!). The theater was used well into the Roman period.

Once you take the Cable Car (20TL) up to the Pergamum acropolis, you can reach the theatre easily and there is no additional fee to enter and look around. Just don't look down! It's very steep ... and acrophobia (fear of heights) can make you feel dizzy when you look down (vertigo).
