Bergama to Canakkale

We headed off after breakfast to visit the ancient site of Aclepios which is supposed to have been a medical centre in Roman times. Fascinating to see the different tunnels, pools and even a small amphitheatre. The pools were a perfect home for the turtles pictured here. One can’t help but wonder what life would have been like in Roman times…particularly if you had some wealth! If course the other extreme of the life of a slave would have been very hard.

Arriving in Canakkale we enjoyed a drink watching the sun set. What a lovely end to a day.
