After lunch we will drive to Pergamon, and spend about two hours in the site. You will have chance to see the Temple of Hadrian, the steepest Hollenistic theater, Zeus altar and the 2nd biggest library in ancient time. After the sightseeing we will drive back to hotel.

A Recent Review of this tour

As an ex teacher, Ertunga is passionate about his interest in the history of his region. This was clearly demonstrated on this tour of Pergamon where not only did we visit the Acropolis and Asclepion, we also went to the Temple of Serapis and local museum. Local knowledge also helped with finding a fantastic place for lunch. Totally unrushed and professional and I learned a lot from Ertunga about the area.
