You should leave the main road and have to ride an extra 20 minutes to see the ruins. You will need about two hours to complete your visit. I think timing is important and best times for visit are late spring, summer and early fall....More

North East of Sivrihisar is the ancient 9thC BC Phrygian capitol of Gordium. Archaeologists have uncovered a large number of artefacts from several burial mounds, tumuli, which give a remarkable insight into the life of the inhabitants over 2,500 years ago. The excavations have revealed...More

If you have the time, check this place out. The burial mound with the cabin thing in it is the best part. The other stuff, such as the ruins of the citadel, were less impressive. I preferred other Phrygian sights in Turkey, such as Yazilikaya,...More

If you've overlooked this area you have missed an incredible experience. Yes, it's a bit out of the way but well worth the trip. If you get a good guide like we had organised by Istanbul Stopover Tours, you will not be disappointed. You will...More

Unless you are driving through Gordion for other reasons, this place isn't really worth a visit as there is not much to see. If you have limited time in Turkey, then this place would be at the bottom of your list to visit. The burial...More

We almost didn't go to the museum because of the lackluster reviews. I am so glad we did. It was fantastic. The tomb and its relics are from 800 BC and they were mind blowing. The tumuli itself is a large burial mound that survived...More

This museum does not accept the MuzeKart, so you end up paying (only 3TL), but they should get into the MuzeKart program like every other museum in Turkey. Museum was full of artifacts, and what I appreciated most -- the signs (in English) actually explained...More

Some of our coach tour party did not see the reason for diverting here instead of spending more time in Bursa but it was interesting to see the surrounding countryside with all its mounds. There is an excellent museum across the road from the tomb...More
