Turkey is the open air museum of prehistoric civilizations. So many ancient civilizations settled in Anatolia and so many are still waiting to be discovered. Nearly every year an ancient city is discovered by chance. Ancient civilizations such as Hittites, Phrygians, Lydians, Ionians, Urartians etc. founded their states in Anatolia and Persian empire, Alexander's empire, Roman empire, Byzantine empire, Seljuk empire, Ottoman empire ruled all over Anatolia / Turkey through last 5000 years, which made Anatolia / Turkey the intersection point of civilizations. That's why you may come across ancient ruins such as an ancient city, an ancient theater, an ancient statue, an ancient tomb, an ancient church etc. anywhere you go across Anatolia. Not to mention the perfect beaches, seas and resorts by the Aegean and Mediterrenean shores. We also have quite nice mountain (ski) resorts. And a perfect cuisine. There's no such land on earth like Turkey! Anyone who visits Turkey would feel like he/she is in wonderland! You may check the links below and see that all my words are true!

Where is ancient Roman?

This question is rather vague because I can read it two ways. One way I can read is asking where can ancient Rome be found and the answer to that is in many places. Today, the ruins of ancient Rome can be found in all the places where they settled and conquered. London has Roman ruins, Italy has ruins that run the length and breath of it, the Middle East also has Roman ruins since Judea was a "client" state of Rome. Rome itself has ancient Roman sites sitting next to modern sites. Pompeii is a prime example of what the life and times of the ancient Roman was like. It is a slice of time frozen in time. So, to answer, as I read it, ancient Rome is all around us.
