After dealing with the crowds at Ephesus, Pergamum is a breath of fresh air. The location is spectacular, high above the nearby villages. You can drive up to the acropolis, or take a cable car (10 lira). I think the site entrance fee is 40...More

Having visited Ephesus two days previously, with its noisy crowds of visitors and agressive souvenir sellers, Pergamon proved a refreshing, relaxing change. Our taxi drove us to the top of the Acropolis (there is also a cable car). The view from the top is spectacular....More

The only ruins I have been to where there is a cable car to take you up to the ruins and the whole thing is well worth it.

We really enjoyed this hilltop visit. The world's steepest amphitheater, wonderful ruins, a view of the remains of an aqueduct, and the fact that you are well above everything, all make this a spectacular place to visit.

We spent most of the time walking tour in the ancient Greek village opposite the ruins site. Some old fashioned house still existing and are the residence for local.

Amazing place to visit. Take 2 hours from izmir city by public transport but all you can see is worth it. The place has a map to guide your way during the visit.

Might be tough to squeeze it all in in an hour, but definitely worth a visit. If the hour does not include time getting to Pergamum or getting back to Izmir then it’s worth it.
