Amasya's ancient tombs and Ottoman architecture

It usually takes a little less than thirty minutes for newly-arrived visitors to decide they’ve just landed in one of Turkey’s most gorgeous towns. A brief stroll along the placid waters of the River Yesilirmark – ancient tombs and a citadel ripe for exploration on one side, charming timbered Ottoman buildings the other, and all around you the abrupt rocky faces of the ravine that encloses the town – is the best introduction to Amasya’s seductive charms. Later on, dividing time between one of the town’s little tea houses and the steaming environs of a local hamam add to that cosseted, romantic feel. Quietly enchanting, at the evening’s end, you won’t want to be anywhere else.
