The most spectacular ruin in the Ancient City of Pergamum is this dramatic Hellenistic Theater. It's carved into a very steep hillside, so it offered a scenic panorama just in case the play was boring. If you are not comfortable with high slopes, you may...More

This one is a perfect ancient city. The theater is quite huge and wants courage to go down. Ancient city is well preserved and explained. I definitely suggest this city.

This vertigo inducing Roman theatre is built on the cliffside and is incredibly steep, What a feat it was to build it and for it to last 2000 years - a real feat of engineering. Needless to say, great views from the top.

The Greeks built this huge theater glued against a steep mountain side. From the top you cannot only see the stage, but a sensational panoramic backdrop that will take your breath away. Pergamon is a large site and you need to be reasonably fit to...More
