4 Days Antakya, Urfa, Mt.Nemrut, Mardin Private from Istanbul

Antakya: Visit to the Grotto of St Peter, erected in the 13th century by the Crusaders. It was here that Peter preached his first sermon and founded the first Christian community. We will visit the Hatay Museum which houses one of the finest collections of Roman mosaics in the world.<br>The view once you climb up the hill to view the sunset on Nemrut by the statues of gods of the Commegene civilization is breathtaking.This vast funeral monument, built by the dynastic ruler Antiochus, is unlike anything else in the world with a remote and isolated location at the top of the mountain. Virtually unknown until after the Second World War, the site was first excavated by the American school of Oriental Research in Connecticut, some years after the war. Mount Nemrut is often called the “Eighth Wonder of the World”.

A must see in this lovely city. Impressive amount if artifacts from the paleontological period onwards. The mosaics are well kept but I actually was kicked out of the museum at 5pm. It takes at least 2 hours to complete this museum. Please go early. The famous Daphne & Apollo mosaic was not there. They said it was at another museum. For our limited time we enjoyed it very much. Just will go earlier next time.

Almost 20 years ago, I visited the old museum. Mosaics were peculiar and magnificent but the place was so small. This year, I loved the new place of the museum. It makes you see the variety of mosaics in spacious display with a big entrance.
