Full description
In this tour you will discover the ancient city of Pergamon, an important cultural center and the east capital of the Roman Empire.

Pergamon is famous for the invention of parchment, which substituted papyrus when it became difficult to obtain.

The tour departs from Izmir, where your guide will meet you and we will drive to Pergamon.

You will visit the breathtaking Acropolis, which was modeled after the one in Athens. The beautiful view from the hill-top will give you a great panorama of the surroundings.

Marvel at the impressive Athenaeum library once held 200,000 volumes, which Mark Antony later offered to Cleopatra as a wedding present.

The Temple of Trajan is a huge marble building that has been partially reconstructed from the original pieces found on the site.

Look forward to discover the famous Sanctuary of Asclepius is located down in the valley from the Acropolis. In this place there was a sacred fountain where people with health problems could bathe. Legend has it that Asclepius would then give them a vision and explain how to be cured.

After a delicious lunch with Turkish specialties, you will have the opportunity to visit the Archeological Museum of Pergamon where you can see many original artifacts found on the site.

At the end of the day, we’ll enjoy a relaxing drive back to Izmir through the beautiful Turkish countryside.
