Turkey boasts one of the world’s oldest civilizations and is decidedly the crossroads between not only Europe and Asia but also between yesterday and today. It is a country with a vast wealth of history, culture and natural phenomenon. Be prepared for an onslaught of powerful attractions at every turn while on Turkey vacations.

One should start in Istanbul, a fashionable yet immensely historical city with a distinct individual ambience and an abundance of architectural wonders, art galleries, museums, boulevards for strolling or shopping and a wide choice of restaurants, cafes and bars.

Just a few must see highlights on a Turkey vacation package are the Hagia Sofia, once a large church, now an imposing historical monument built during the Byzantium period, the Blue Mosque, the epitome of grandeur and beauty in its design, the walled Topkapi Palace, with its many treasures including the Harem, the Fountain of Sultan Ahmet III and the Inner Treasury and the atmospheric exotic Grand Bazaar, fascinating for both shoppers and non-shoppers.


Another must on Turkey vacations is a cruise on the Bosphorus which allows you to view Istanbul with a different perspective as the city unfurls as you sail by.

Outside of Istanbul, Ankara, the capital is built on a series of hills and worth a visit. See the outstanding mausoleum dedicated to Ataturk, the founder of modern Turkey. Cappadocia is totally unique with its lunar-like landscape where houses and churches are built into the rocks as are underground cities. Definitely visit the Goreme Open Air Museum with its churches, chapels and monasteries.

Ephesus is the best known archeological site on a Turkey vacation dating back to the Roman Empire with its many treasures including the Library, Sacred Way and the Temple of Hadrian. Another similar site is located at Pergamum.

Konya, a conservative yet charming city is the home of the Whirling Dervishes. Antalya and Kusadasi are two fashionable resorts with excellent beaches to be enjoyed on a Turkey vacation.

A visit to Turkey is definitely going to leave you in awe. Book one of our Turkey tours today and experience it for yourself.
