The Acropolis, Bergama

4.7
#2 of 10 in Things to do in Bergama
Nestled atop a hill, The Acropolis sits as a memorial to ancient civilizations, their wealth, and their cultural advancement. The Greek, Roman, and Turkish left their marks here. Its remains take up 90 hectares (220 acres), where you can explore anything from gymnasiums to lavish temples. Visit the 10,000-seat theater, considered to be the steepest in the ancient world, and view the ruins of once-extravagant royal palaces. You'll also see a legendary library, which contained 200,000 volumes at one time.  Using our international travel planner, Bergama attractions like The Acropolis can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • Nice place with lots of history. Not the best condition compared with Ephesus but still worth visiting. The views from up there are amazing.
