Benefits of Booking Excursions in Ankara through

As Turkey's capital, Ankara may not get the touristy love of Istanbul or Cappadocia, but it has a lot to offer cultural travelers. Whether you're looking for an ancient city to explore or a modern art gallery to check out, Ankara has it all.

For history buffs, the city's citadel is a must-see. The historic fortress is steeped in global history and boasts amazing views from the top.

Ankara Castle

Sitting high on a hill, Ankara Castle is one of the most interesting places to visit in Ankara. Besides being the site of many historical artifacts, it also offers visitors a breathtaking view of the city.

Ankara Castle is divided into two parts: the inner castle and the outer castle. Inside the inner castle, there are a number of old houses that are still used for commercial purposes.

You can find a number of restaurants, cafes and shops in the old castle. Moreover, there are also museums inside the castle that you can visit.


A symbol of Turkish heritage, Anitkabir is the final resting place of Mustafa Kemal Ataturk, founder and first President of the Republic of Turkey. This opulent mausoleum is designed by Emin Onat, who won an international competition to design the monument.

There are numerous attractions at Anitkabir, including the Hall of Honor where Ataturk’s tomb lies. There’s also a Peace Park where you can relax and admire the beautiful flower beds.

On each side of the steps leading to the Mausoleum there are Victory Reliefs depicting various stages in Turkish history. In addition, there’s a 33-meter flagpole made from a single piece of metal that proudly waves the Turkish flag.

Atakule Tower

One of the most recognizable sights in the city, Atakule Tower is 125 meters high and can be seen from almost anywhere in Ankara. Located in the Cankaya district, this observation and communications tower was built during 1987 to 1989.

It’s also home to an open terrace, which enables you to observe the city from above. You can even enjoy a meal in the revolving restaurant that makes a 360-degree rotation in an hour.

Erimtan Archeology and Arts Museum

Erimtan Archeology and Arts Museum is home to a collection of about two thousand movable artifacts, many of which have their roots in Anatolia. The collection started with Yuksel Erimtan’s purchase of Roman ring stones in 1960, and expanded over time with the advice of expert archaeologists.

Its displays are creatively curated with an eye for storytelling, and feature state-of-the-art multimedia displays. Some of the museum’s most impressive exhibits include a vast coin collection, ceramic and jewellery pieces, and cuneiform tablets from Kultepe. It also has a tranquil garden cafe.


Genclik Park

The attractively designed Genclik Park offers a relaxing break from the bustle of downtown Ankara. It is a lovely green space and a popular spot for recreational activities.

There are many attractions to see in this place such as Luna Park, a well-designed basketball arena apart from a football stadium. It is a fun place for the kids and an ideal destination for a picnic.

The Museum of Anatolian Civilizations exhibits the remains of Anatolian civilizations from the Neolithic age to Roman times. It is an excellent place to learn about Turkey's history.


Museum of Anatolian Civilizations

The Museum of Anatolian Civilizations, located in two Ottoman-era buildings near Ankara Castle in the Atpazari district, displays a bevy of impressively crafted artefacts. A full tour of this snazzy establishment should be on every traveler’s list of things to do when in town. The museum houses a dazzling array of exhibits spanning from the Neolithic to the Phrygian and Urartian eras. It has a little something for everyone, from the discerning historian to the weepy tourist.

The best part is the priceless museum is free to enter.


A stroll through the city’s citadel neighborhood, ringed by fortifications raised in the 9th century, is one of Ankara’s most atmospheric things to do. Inside, narrow cobblestone alleyways are rimmed by creaky Ottoman-era houses.

Alacahoyuk, an archaeological site famed for its royal shaft graves and a dazzling cache of decorative gold objects and jewelry, is another highlight here. The tombs themselves are now on display in the city’s Museum of Anatolian Civilizations, but the site’s fortifications and a corbeled tunnel entrance at the back are also worth exploring.
