Turkey is home to an overwhelming number of archaeological sites, the legacy of its rich and troubled past. Examples of Greek and Roman architecture rub shoulders with Hittite, Urartian, Phrygian, Hellenistic, and Byzantine offerings whilst there are also a number of more classical attractions too. Just try and ignore the modern monstrosities found on the more popular coastal areas.
