Visit the Museum of Anatolian Civilisations in Ankara for its renowned collections of Hittite and Urartian art or venture east to vast Lake Van and its tiny islands dotted with Armenian churches. Wander among preserved Ottoman mansions in Safranbolu or descend to the eerie chambers of Derinkuyu&;s underground city.

this beguiling region.
