Your experience

Description

If you sit high on a hill, you have to walk or take the cable car to Pergamon, but that's just the beginning of your adventure! Cast a new light on classical history as you discover one of the ancient cultural, artistic and scientific centres of the Hellenistic world.

Before it was bequeathed to the Romans in 133 B.C., Pergamon with its extensive hilly landscape was one of the largest cities in the Greek world at that time. High up on a rocky hill the way can still be arduous, but fortunately there is a modern cable car - the ancient Greeks and Romans did not have one.

Either way, the views are breathtaking! Wander through the ancient sites and learn how the buildings were upgraded by the Romans under Augustus, Trajan, Hadrian and Caracalla. The library here was the second largest in the Roman world after Alexandria, and it is also the place where parchment is said to have been invented.

You will see important sites such as the local acropolis, the ruins of the royal palace, the original location of the altar of Zeus, the temple of Athena and an archaeological museum.

If you get hungry, you can also enjoy a traditional Turkish lunch with soup, salads, chicken or meatballs. A vegetarian option is also available if you wish!
