The theater of the ancient Pergamum acropolis ('high city') is visible from Bergama, the modern day continuation of Pergamum. We stopped in Bergama for lunch before visiting the acropolis. We also saw the ruins of the Temple of Isis mingled among modern buildings. This site has more info on the acropolis as well as the ruins within the modern city:

A 'call to prayer' happened while we were at the acropolis, and the ethereal way it echoed through the hills was mesmerizing. Nathan recorded it on his camera but accidentally deleted it while purging photos. Bummer. :(
