Visitor Information -- The only available information is a rough topographical map placed outside the ticket booth that won't do you any good once you drive away. The Hattusas Pansiyon has a good map of the site and the town; visit www.hattusha.com.

There may be an "employee" at the booth offering his services or, more innocently, asking for a ride through the site, but don't be fooled -- this is a local posing as a guide for tips. Although some of the locals can be knowledgeable, you'll have to weigh the fact that you'll be relinquishing your right to silence and self-discovery as you attempt to absorb the enormity of the place. All of the significant sites are signposted, so you don't have to worry about missing them.

Note: This information was accurate when it was published, but can change without notice. Please be sure to confirm all rates and details directly with the companies in question before planning your trip.
