Pergamon tour from Dikili Port with a Private Guide


Meet at Dikili Port and drive visit to Pergamum Acropolis to see the steepest theater of the ancient world then visit the Asklepion, the ancient hospital.

Pergamum Acropolis and Asclepion.

Pergamon is also known as Bergama (road signs) and old Pergamum. Roman marble stones wound up in lime kilns or were moved to museums, so what remains is a genuine Hellenistic acropolis of buildings before the Romans came, with one major exception.
Homer and Herodotus studied and wrote here, and the library was the 2nd largest in the world, next to Alexandria's, with over 200, 000 books. When Egypt refused to export more papyrus to old Pergamum, people here invented parchment , using calfskin.

Itinerary

WHAT YOU VISIT
Pergamum - including Acropolis, Asclepion and the Red Basilica. Famed for its great library, the citizens of ancient Pergamum invented parchment for writing when the supply of papyrus was cut off. Pergamum's Asclepion was the most famous classical medical center.

Acropolis - It was built on an extremely steep hill, approached by a winding road ascending some 300m. In this uniquely designed city, religious, official, social and commercial buildings are all found side-by-side.
Asclepion - Asclepion translates as 'place of Aesklepios', the son of Apollo and the god of healing and health, and was an important health center in Greco-Roman times.

Red Basilica - In the Byzantine period, it was turned into a church by extensive remodeling, especially to the apse sections, and was dedicated to the St. John. In early Christianity, it was one of the Seven Churches of Asia Minor addressed by St. John in the Book of Revelation, who referred to it as the throne of the Devil.

A Recent Review of this tour

Our cruise ship switched ports so I was concerned about meeting our guide. There was no problem. He was there at the new time. We were able to leave early so missing the groups from the cruise ship. We had a great tour. We learned a lot and had a fun, fun day.
