  • Good luck with your onermekle to do with guided tours, it's up to date standing and Turkey also places the first 4 terms is in. Kelsey Centre 3 km away, where you can enter the Museum card, min. 4 hours a day need to be passed that ruins both historical curiosity ones lived civilizations in Anatolia, and even history of religions has somewhere important. Guide Utku arkadasımıza love.

  • Excellent restored site. Well worth the visit. The Library, temples, and even the ancient latrines are fascinating.
