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.

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.

This is one of the top sites in Turkey, next to Ephesus, Troy, Pamukkale and Cappadocia. It gave its name to 'percament', it is still known as a colour, so this must be impressive. And it is. To get an overall view of an ancient...More

The most important cultural, artistic and scientific center of the hellenistic world. Its library was tivaling with the Alexandria library. Only the base of the Zeus altar remained on the acropolis. The front of the altar is rebuilt in the Berlin Pergamon Museum.

Phenomenal views and impressive restoration make this a quality stop when you're in the Ephesus-Smyrna-Pergamon region of Izmir. I've been to Ephesus multiple times (and am still impressed), but I can't stop thinking about Pergamon. Brings a whole new light on ancient Biblical history from...More

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.
