Our day begins with a flight, from Istanbul, to Adiyaman where you'll be picked up at the airport and embark on an exploration of Adiyaman, starting at the Karakus Tumulus, an ancient archaeological site steeped in history and mystery. Continuing our journey, we'll cross the impressive Severus (Cendere) Bridge, an architectural wonder, and delve into the remnants of ancient Arsemia, where history comes to life amid captivating ruins.
We venture towards the majestic Mount Nemrut, home to the Tombs of Commagene Kingdom and the towering Colossal Statues of Gods. Ascending to the Tumulus of Antiochos, the former capital of Kommagene, we'll await a breathtaking sunset from the summit of Nemrut. This ancient funerary monument, concealed in time for almost two millennia, will be a remarkable backdrop as the sun descends, painting the sky in hues of serenity atop Mt. Nemrut.
