DAILY PERGAMUM TOUR FROM ISTANBUL BY FLIGHT

Pergamum was social and cultural as much as it was sacred. Built on a conical hill rising 1000 feet above the surrounding valley, Pergamum (also spelled Pergamon) was an important capital city in ancient times. Pergamum is home to two of the country’s most celebrated archaeological sites: Pergamum’s Acropolis and Asclepion are both listed among the top 100 historical sites on the Mediterranean. Most of the buildings and monuments in Pergamum date to the time of Eumenes II (197-159BC), including the famed library, the terrace of the spectacularly sited hillside theater, the main palace, the altar of Zeus, and the propylaeum of Athena Temple.
