Local Guide

The ochre-hued central Anatolian plateau, cleft by ravines and dominated by volcanic peaks, forms the heartland of Turkey and is one of the cradles of human civilisation. Ankara is full of ancient sights with a diverse history dating back to Palaeolithic Anatolia, the Celts and the 19th C founding of modern Turkey: remains of settlements from as early as the eighth millennium B.C. have been unearthed at Catalhoyuk, and it has been established that Ankara was the summer capital of the Roman emperors around A.D. 400. Ankara is well on its way to becoming one of Turkey's vibrant and diverse metropolises. Child-friendly, Ankara is pleasantly green, distances are manageable and traffic is still relatively light.
