Overview

According to your pick up time, meet with your guide and depart for Pergamum which had a principal place of its own in all of Asia. The city was the capital of the most magnificent Kingdom that existed in this region. The city is situated 100 km north of Izmir, and the historian Pliny named it: "By far the most famous city in all of Asia". The reason for this importance was when John wrote his Letter, Pergamum had been a capital city for nearly four hundred years. After the mythical times, Pergamum had already been the scene of several cultures, ranging from the Stone and Bronze Ages up until the Classical and Archaic Periods.

Among the palaces, temples and agora’s, the Asclepion, which was constructed in one century, belonged to the Parchment Library and the big Zeus Altar. They stand as the most magnificent works of art of the third and fourth century B.C. in Anatolia. The Parchment Library contained the most famous collection of books from that time and written on a type of processed goat and lambskins. This was a process that was invented in Pergamum when the leaders of Ptolemean Egypt stopped the export of Egyptian papyrus sheets to Pergamum. Other grand buildings of this period are the Temple of Athena and those of Demeter and Dionysos.

After lunch, we will continue to Asclepion known under the name of "The Pergamum God of Health". In ancient times there was in this part of the world three popular religious shrines and holy places. They were the Artemisia of Ephesus, the Apollo cult of Delphi and that of Asclepius Pergamum. Asclepius the deity health and medicine served the people for several hundred years; thus making Pergamum a medical centre of very great importance. Famous medical Scholar including Hippocrates and Galenus were born in Pergamum and worked there.

This was a perfect tour, very nice weather and excellent tour object. My tour guide gave a very good and thorough presentation of Pergamum and Asklepion. She also gave me some free time to shoot photos and walk freely along with the tour sites. My guide was very polite and answered all my questions very patiently. Also drive to tour site and back was nice and o time. Pergamum itself is located at a unique place, on the top of the hill, which gave exceptionally nice sceneries. Surely a place to visit.

We had a fantastic visit with a most articulate, knowledgeable and enthusiastic guide to Pergamon and Asklepion. His expertise made this visit memorable for us. The pickup, the transport, lunch and everything else about the visit were also excellent. Great experience.

Very well managed tour with a very good guide. Both Pergamum and Asklepion are absolutely worth visiting. My trip was during the off-season and there was only three of us in this tour. This made it more like a private tour which was very nice. It would be good to take the cable car to the top of the hill rather than going with the van as the road is not that smooth. But still all worth it.
