When you arrive in the port of Izmir, your private guide will be waiting to lead you to your own luxury vehicle, in which you can relax as your private shore excursion to Pergamum.
Bergama is home to two of the country’s most celebrated archaeological sites: the Acropolis and the Asklepion of ancient Pergamum, both listed among the top 100 historical sites on the Mediterranean.
Most of the extraordinary buildings and monuments in Bergama date to the time of Eumenes II (197-159 BC), including the famed library, the terrace of the spectacularly sited hillside theater, the main palace, the Altar of Zeus and the propylaeum of the Temple of Athena.
In the early Christian era, Pergamum’s church was a major center of Christianity and was one of the Seven Churches of Revelation (Rev. 2:12-17).
The ancient city is composed of three main parts: the Acropolis, whose main function was social and cultural as much as it was sacred; the Lower City, or realm of the lower classes; and the Asklepion, one of the earliest medical centers on record.
Once you finish the visit of the sites, as a part of the tour to see the Turkish fine-arts you will also visit a local gallery which produces and sells products that are distinctively Turkish – for example, handmade carpets, ceramics or silver.
You will see the process of the production from the raw materials to the final product and you will have a chance to give a try of this process. After all the visits, you will turn back to port of Izmir.
