Tour description

After pick up from Sanliurfa or Adıyaman airport or hotel you will meet your guide and you will begin your tour of this hallowed landscape.


On the way to Mount Nemrut, you will visit 'Black Bird Burial Mound', also known as ‘Karakus Tumulus’, a monumental mausoleum built in 36 BC.

You will also travel over the ancient Roman Bridge at Cendere which is built so well it can still be used today.

Snap photos of the ancient Roman Severan Bridge, and visit the ruins of Arsemia, which date back to 200 BC, to learn about the Commagene Kingdom. 

The region that lies between the Taurus Mountains and the Euphrates was called Commagene during the Greek and Roman periods. Commagene was established originally as an independent kingdom in 162 BC by Mithridates Kalinikos I. The kingdom was at the height of its splendor during the period of King Antiochus I (69-36 B. C.), who succeeded Mithridates. Most of the archaeological remains which survive to our times, including the tumulus at the peak of Nemrut Dag, which still refuses to reveal all its secrets, are from the time of Antiochus I. At the cone shape summit of this 200m elevated mountain one can find statues mythical figures of Apollon, Zeus, Hercules, and others.

The highest point in the region at an altitude of 2134m, Mount Nemrut provides a spectacular viewpoint for sunrise or sunset, with the scattered heads of the statues lending a mystical essence to the scene.

There will be free time for lunch and your guide will suggest best places to try some local foods.
