Harran Ruins are genuine culture items of world history no doubt. However the area of university and even town itself is quite neglected. Only few of beehive houses are remaining and they are converted into "culture houses" which you may have to pay. ATTENTION: Keep...More

A day in Harran was very adventurous. The houses were outstanding and the people were very authentic. Spoke to them and had a cup of coffee.

Hurran itself can be seen in a day if you start from Sanliurfa 40km away. But if you want to see the nearby sights, you will need at least 2 days and probably 3 days and a good plan to cut out the backtracking and...More
