    Catalhoyuk is 13 kms away from tawn of Cumra. There is no direct bus to Catalhoyuk from Konya. You must go to Cumra by bus or train. For the 13 kms you must ask at Cumra or hire a taxi.

    There might be public bus "Number 26 Karaman Yolu" which departs from the centre called "Fuar Yolu" in Konyo toCatalhoyuk. But you must ask at Konya.
    The time table:

    I add:
    The Anadolu Medeniyetleri Muzesi" the Anatolian Civilization Museum at the Citadel of Ankara has many interesting funds from Catalhoyuk and other Hittite culture. Dont miss to visit Ankara for one day. If you are interested in Hittites you can spend a year in the museum.
    Have a nice time.

    Very very sorry I found later abot the following. Plese CANCEL IT. The bus goes to a district in Konya called Catalhoyuk not to antic city near Cumra.
    Cancel the following:
    There might be public bus "Number 26 Karaman Yolu" which departs from the centre called "Fuar Yolu" in Konyo toCatalhoyuk. But you must ask at Konya.
