A long time ago, actually from 3rd century BC to 1st century AD Bergama or if you prefer Perganum was one of the richest and powerful small kingdoms of the Mediterranean See. Today, it is an extensive and well presented site of ruins situated on hill on the outskirts of the city. We had an amazing opportunity to visit this site at sunset, when there were no tourists around and for FREE.  Well, we sneaked through a hole in the fence used by shepherds letting their goats graze….( Yup..It looks that goats and shepherds don’t have to pay for tickets). We also met there two very nice, Turkish guys – Abdul and his brother, who we joined for a “private” exploration of this site:D
