There is a cable car adventure :) to Amisos hills at Samsun. Ýt takes you to tumuli of Baruthane where you can visit the archaeological park. Hills offer you a great view of Blacksea. Also there is a nice restaurant&cafe called Amisos with a stunning view. The place provides delicous food, reasonable prices and sea view... what else we need :)
During your visit you'll see two tombs in the archaeological park dated 4th century B.C. unfortunately ancient tomb robbers havent left them alone :(
Cable car ticket is 2 TL (return ticket-u need to keep ur ticket) =1 Euro
Samsun has long sandy beaches in both western and eastern sides. If you do not like to spend all your holiday at the seaside i recommend you mountainous areas. Nowadays it is possible to go to hills by car. But discovering our unique nature by climbing or walking is a better way. A break near a fountain or stream, smells of grass, wild flowers and thyme will surround you with love. Here is a good itinerary:Go to Duvecik village(8 kms southeast of Samsun-Other side of Mert river) then continue to walk to hills you see. When you arrive the top, a nice scenery will meet you. Now you can enjoy looking down the Yilanlidere(Snake Stream) valley.
