Myself and my wife visited this area in June this year, and had a wonderful afternoon. We drove up the old road, which was a great drive, and has to be done. The area is fantastic, and the views breathtaking!

The road up to the ancient city is an experience in itself - we were on a little scooter, and loved every minute of it. The city remains were well worth the visit and left you boggling at the incredible views and the peoples who once inhabited the city.
