Private Tour of Historical Ankara City
Learn all about the Byzantine and Roman history in Ankara as you visit the Museum of Anatolian Civilizations with your guide where you will see artefacts dating back to the Stone Age and get the chance to admire the Road of Lions at the mausoleum of Atatürk who was the first president of the Republic of Turkey.
After pickup from your central Ankara hotel you will visit the Museum of Anatolian Civilizations, home to exhibits of remnants like jewellery, dishes, and sculptures that are all thousands of years old from the Stone Age and the Neolithic Age as well as the Urartian, Hittite, and Phrygian periods.
With your guide, you can take in the view of the Ankara Castle, also known as the Ankara Citadel. This hilltop castle was once controlled by the Romans, Seljuq Turks, Byzantines, crusaders, and again by the Seljuqs in the 1200s before the citadel had major repairs under the order of Ibrahim Pasa in the 1800s.
