About this tour

Discover the secrets of one of Anatolia’s oldest civilizations as you explore the ancient Hittite ruins of Yazilikaya and Hattusas. Enjoy the undivided attention of your guide on this private tour as you explore the Hittite capital of Hattusas, visit the Yazilikaya rock shrines and see the remnants of an ancient civilization dating back as early as 3,000 BC. This private tour includes lunch and hotel pick-up.

The capital of the Hittite Empire during the late Bronze Age, Hattusas is one of the best sites of ancient ruins in Turkey. During its heyday, it was an impressive city with spectacular structures, but now consists mostly of reconstructed foundations, walls, and rock carvings. Do not let the relatively modest sounding attractions deter you, however. Lovers of ancient history will be more impressed by the site’s almost eerily enchanting atmosphere, which conveys the historic antiquity of a place long forgotten by time.

Admission to Hattusas affords fantastic up-close views of numerous ancient relics, from Buyuk Mabed (its name meaning Great Temple, one of the best preserved Hittite temples left today) to San Kale (Yellow Castle, it may have been a Phrygian fort). Wander around for the afternoon and you will see many other ancient temples, forts, castles, gates, and tunnels, which truly transport visitors back to the time of the Hittite Empire.

Tour Schedule:

Meet the guide and driver at the hotel at 7.30am. After driving nearly 210 km. we arrive in Hattusas which was the capital of the Hittite Kingdom for a long time. Before visiting the main capital, we proceed to Yazılıkaya to see the open air sanctuary as the sun light comes on the bas-reliefs direct in the morning.

We will get our lunch in a local restaurant. After the lunch we visit the archaeological site of Hattusas, former capital of the Hittite Empire which is notable for its urban organization, the types of construction that have been preserved (temples, royal residences, fortifications), the rich ornamentation of the Lions’ Gate and the Royal Gate and Tunnel. Then we drive back to Cappadocia.
