Situated on top of a windswept mountain along the Turkish coastline and looking over the beautiful Aegean Sea sit the ruins of the ancient Greek City of Pergamon.  Although the majority of its monuments now sit in Berlin’s Pergamon Museum, enough remains of the Acropolis for visitors to understand how this city one dominated the entire region, and now it rivalled Alexandria, Ephesus & Antioch in culture and commerce.  In addition, advancements in science and medicine in Pergamon contributed greatly to today’s field of modern medicine, large due to the efforts of Roman physician Galen. A Pergamon Tour is a great day out for those based in Kusadasi or Selcuk
