    Gobeklitepe is the oldest human settlement on Earth! Even if difficult to find an available tour to Gobeklitepe, not at all promoted we insisted to arrive here and the effort was rewarded. Not many agencies organize tours to Gobeklitepe in Turkey. We were lucky and found this agency online. A great archaeology museum, very modern, and the archeological sites and the pool of Abraham as well. Verry strange and full of meanings place in Turkey! Was it indeed the first astronomical observatory in the world?? Fascinating, and the sites are well presented by Turkey Tourism. Recommended this day trip from Istanbul.
