Day 5 - 26th April - Ayvalik - Gumuldur/Kusadasi - breakfast
Today, we drive south. Set on a high hill are the Roman ancient ruins of Pergamum, once one of the Middle East's richest and most powerful little kingdoms. Home to one of the steepest, vertigo-inducing amphitheatres in the classical world, Pergamum was also famous for its asclepion (medical centre). See the Temple of Trajan and of course the Library, which in its time was said to rival the library in ancient Alexandria.
We also visit the neighbouring asclepion - a Roman precursor to modern-day hospitals!
Continuing to coastal Gumuldur, relax after a day of high-jinks.

Dinner and overnight - Kusadasi.
