Trojan Horse of Troy was the start at Canakkale and after lunch we headed to Acropolis - Bergama's richest archaeological dramatic site perched atop a
high steep-sided hill. The ruins of the Acropolis is well preserved until this day albeit completed in the 5th century BC and allows tourists to have a glimpse of ancient Turkey when glory, power and war reigned. The locals sought refuge when the town was under siege and later, buildings and establishment were erected.Acropolis is is divided into two sections. Upper section where you see the Hellenistic Theater, Trajaneum, Atheneum, Sanctuary of Athena and Royal Palaces and the Temple of Demeter, Sanctuary of Hera, House of Attalus, Lower Agora and Gate of Eumenes at the lower section.
2 hours of walking in this huge area indeed was quiet exhausting though you can take shorts break, rest and continue walking. Acropolis indeed is a magnificent and marvellous site and to complete your visit, take the cable car ride to the highest hilltop point for another stunning scenery.
On your way back down, there's stalls selling food and drinks. I tried the hot yoghurt spicy drink and loved it. A little tangy and aromatic, the drink to keep the body warm during winter.
Sightseeing for the day was over, then dinner and back again on the road to Kusadasi for the night's stay.
