Begin with an orientation drive to the old town where you’ll visit the Archaeological Museum, one of the most important in Turkey and home to classical pieces found in and around the city as well as historic copies of the Qur’an. The museum has numerous exhibition halls where prehistoric and historic artifacts dating back to the Phrygian, Lydian, Greek and Byzantine periods are on display. Some of the exhibits include a large coin collection, a bronze sculpture of Herakles from 200 A.D. which has become a popular symbol for the museum, ethnographic artifacts from different eras dating back to pre-history, mosaics, and much more. The museum garden is dotted with Bronze Age, Phrygian, Lydian and Urartian effects and Hellenistic pottery items.
