Pergamum (Bergama)

Getting Here and Around

If you're coming from Ayvalık, drive 44 km (27 mi) south on the E87 and then turn off following the signs to Bergama, a further 10 km (6 mi).

The Bergama bus terminal is 5 mi out of the city center, but there's a free shuttle service that stops near the post office and basilica in the center of the old town. There's also minibus service for TL 1.5. In other words, if a taxi driver tells you there's no bus service and tries to charge you TL 25 for the short trip, know that there are other options—or bargain with him.
