Daily Pergamon Air Plane Tour Summary
You will have an early morning pick up from your Istanbul hotel and be transferred to Istanbul domestic airport for a short domestic flight to Izmir.
On arrival you will be met by your guide and will embark on a full guided tour of Asklepion, Zeus alter, Red Basilica and the ancient ruins of Pergamon (Bergama), the site of the Hellenistic - and later Roman - city ruled for several centuries by a powerful local dynasty.
Excavations were completed here in 1886, but unfortunately much of what was found has since been carted off to Germany.
However, the acropolis of Eumenes II remains a major attraction, and there are a host of lesser sights and an old quarter of chaotic charm.
Its foremost attraction is the Kizil Avlu or "Red Basilica", a huge edifice on the river not far from the acropolis, originally built as a temple to the Egyptian god Osiris and converted to a basilica by the early Christians, when it was one of the Seven Churches of Asia Minor addressed by St John in the book of Revelation.
This tour involves no long bus journeys, only a short domestic flight ensuring that your travel is relaxing and comfortable. Book your day trip with TravelShop Turkey.
