Kutahya is a town in the Central Anatolia region of Turkey. Known for its colored tiles, Kutahya Faience, the town also serves as a base for the ruins of the Temple of Zeus in Aizanoi, amongst the best preserved Roman ruins in the country.
Kutahya is well connected by bus. Buses leave almost every 45 minutes for Istanbul (six hours) and Bursa (three hours). More than a dozen buses depart daily for Ankara (five hours) from where easy connections are available to points in Eastern Turkey. There are several buses daily to Antalya (eight hours) with connections to points along the coast.
As Kutahya is situated in an ideally central location of Turkish rail network, there are daily train connections from Istanbul, Ankara, Izmir, Adana, Konya, and a number of other cities.
From Kutahya, minibuses bound for Gediz or Emet stop a little less than a km away from Aizanoi on the Kutahya - Usak road. An occasional dolmus meets the bus but be prepared to walk to the Temple of Zeus.
