WHY SHOULD YOU SEE PERGAMON AND IZMIR?
The Ancient City of Pergamon, one of the most important cultural centers of the Hellenistic period, bears the traces of the Hellenistic period, especially in its libraries, temples, streets, waterways, fountains and cisterns, trade centers, theater and social areas. We recommend anyone interested in the Hellenistic Period to visit the Ancient City of Pergamon.Also Pergamon was the home of Dr.Galen the founder of pharmacology. The Serapis Temple was converted into a church and was one of the first of the Severn Churches mentioned in the Bible. Pergamon is “throne of Satan,” referred to by St.John in the Book of Revelations.
CONCEPT OF THE TOUR
Our tour commences at the Izmir Clock Tower, constructed in 1901 to celebrate the 25th anniversary of Ottoman Sultan II. Abdulhamid’s throne accession. Following this, we will proceed to a site known as the ‘Elevator,’ passing through Dario Moreno Street, named after the Izmir-loving artist of Jewish origin. Our subsequent stop is Kemeraltı Bazaar. Developed through land reclamation and residential and commercial expansion since 1650-1670, it thrives as a bustling commercial district. We’ll then explore the Agora of Izmir, which was founded in the 4th century BC and later reconstructed under Roman Emperor Marcus Aurelius after the 178 AD earthquake.
Our journey takes us to Kadıfekale, another historical site. Continuing, we traverse the UNESCO-listed Pergamon Ancient City. Our program concludes with visits to the Pergamon Museum and the Asklepeion, followed by our return journey.
