Tour of Pergamon with Private Guide


A joyful drive along the coast of Aegean passing through one of the major cities in Turkey, Izmir and later along by some fishing villages and olive groves, too.

It's Upper City ( Ancient Acropolis) will reveal itself on the highest point of the hill from 15 kms distance way before you enter the modern town.
Defence, defense, defense
That must be the primary idea why Pergamon was built on such naturally steep fume color Basalt Hillside.

Once entering the town of Bergama, a peraon can not avoid feeling oneself in the antiquity because in every corner either an Ancient Egytptian Temple, a Church, an Ancient Hospital or a 500 year old Turkish Bath can bee seen.

The whole town of Bergama designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site is a living outdoor Museum with it's unique architecture, ancient artifacts, culinary, local arts of embroidery and their world-famous burgondy and sapphron color carpets laid out decorating sidewalks of this epic town.
