  • One of the best pieces remained from ancient era , preserved like this. Terrace Houses / Yamac Evleri is under a giant umbrella like steel construction. It is priced separately as 35 TL as entrance fee. You really should have to pay this price since it will change your illusion how the daily life in those era. Every detail in a ancient settlement is so living, from souls to mosaics and from bath ceiling to color painted walls. Must visit!!!!
  • If you want to see and feel the daily life of Romans 2000 years ago you should visit this place. You have to pay an extra fee to see the area but it was really worth it👌🏼 Mosaics on the floors, paintings on the walls, architectural design, clean and dirty water systems etc will facinate you.
