ITINERARY

 

Departure from the port of Izmir for an itinerary of great historical interest which will take us, in more or less 2 hours, to Pergamum. The main center, together with Alexandria, of the Hellenistic civilization in the East and capital of the Roman province of Asia, Pergamum enjoyed over three centuries of economic prosperity which resulted in exceptional cultural and artistic development. It is possible to appreciate the ability of Greek and Roman architects in developing this challenging location to the urbanity requirements of a great capital city. We visit the “ASKELEPION” complex built to honor ASCLEPIO, god of medicine (ESCULAPIO for the Romans), former place of worship and therapeutically center among the most celebrated in the ancient world. We then reach the ACROPOLIS, which dominates dominating the surrounding plain from a height of 275m. Originally fenced by three walls, of which few traces remain, on this rocky spur many temples, palaces, public and private buildings were erected. Visit the carpet weaving corporation to see how carpets are made by hand. SHOPPING; Your guide escorts you to a store around Pergamum your rendezvous point after experiencing the marketplace. Take in a carpet-weaving demonstration or explore the Bazaar, where the shops are organized by the wares they sell. The narrow alleys are filled with shops offering jewelry, carpets, leather ware, copper goods and more. Bargaining is expected – and half the fun.
