Gallipoli, Troy & Pergamum Tour
Pergamum
Pergamum is where the paper known as parchment, made from animal skins, was invented. On the Upper Acropolis is the theatre, which has the steepest seating of any theater in the ancient world. The Asklepion (Aesculapium), to the west of this city is of so many ‘first’s in the field of health, it is here where the entwined snake figure symbolic of pharmacy & medicine was first observed. But ancient ruins are not Bergama’s only attraction. There are two quarters that stand out in this town whose back streets are chock full of surprises...
