You can take a taxi to reach the Citadel, or if you are feeling overly ambitious you can actually walk (hike) up to it. When you arrive, you will be rewarded with sweeping panoramic views of the city of Ankara. The Citadel is in a bit of disrepair, but it has a fascinating history and it is worth reading up on it before you go. There are also a lot of little shops nearby where you can buy inexpensive souvenirs.
