Turkey: Pergamum and Izmir

We began in the ancient city of Pergamum, built on the top of a mountain. Rain greeted us, but the day quickly became stunning.
The theatre built right on the side of the hill - this seated 10,000 people.
The site of an ancient Greek hospital.
Izmir - the third largest city in Turkey. It is built around a bay, and has so many incredible views. It is also the most western city in Turkey.
