Bergamon – Assos

Monday 5 October

More ruins today at ancient Pergamum in Bergama which we accessed by taking the gondola lift to the top of the hill to explore the Acropolis.

Then we continued to the village of Assos. We needed to leave our small bus at the top of the hill and travel by car to the hotel. It was well worth it with the small town of cobbled streets and our magnificent 180 year old hotel situated next to the little fishing boats.

Again so many cats and kittens playing around and having the cheek to try to get food from us, so the fish heads from our meals of sea bream and sea bass were gratefully received. From our room which overlooked the Aegean Sea, the coast guard boat could be seen patrolling its waters.
