Magical Journeys to Turkey

Turkey has a very diverse culture derived from various elements of the Ottoman Empire, European, and the Islamic traditions. As Turkey successfully transformed from a religion-driven former Ottoman Empire into a modern nation-state with a very strong separation of state and religion, the increase in the methods of artistic expression followed

Istanbul Tours, Travel to Turkey

Under the romantic backdrop of minarets and mosques, like a step out of time stands the ancient city of Istanbul. The only city in the world built on two continents, Europe and Asia, standing on the shores of the Bosphorus and guarding the precious relics of the world-dominating empires. Straddling the Bosphorus, its skyline studded with domes and minarets, Istanbul is one of the world's truly great romantic cities. Today Istanbul hums as Turkey's cultural heart and good-time capital …

Bodrum Tours, Travel to Turkey

Part archeological wonder, part sun-soaked holiday resort, Bodrum is a city of startling contrasts. Don't be put off by its hard-partying reputation and seemingly endless stream of European travel-package tourists - dig beneath the surface and you'll find there's much more to Bodrum. The site of one of the seven wonders of the ancient world and once the ancient city of Halicarnassus, Bodrum is a place where traces of its rich history are abundant …

» Fethiye

Fethiye Tours, Travel to Turkey

Just inland from the main port area and east of the ancient amphitheater is Fethiye's old town, known as Paspatur. The narrow streets here are filled with shops and street stalls selling everything from Turkish carpets, jewelry and antiques to edible goodies like spices and Turkish delight; there are also touristic knick-knacks aplenty. Even if you're not planning on buying anything, Paspatur is a great place for wandering around and people-watching …

» Izmir

Izmir Tours, Travel to Turkey

Although it has a dramatic setting around a bay backed by mountains, most of Izmir is modern, which makes it a hard city in which to fall in love with at first sight. Give it a chance and you may find Turkey' third-largest city growing on you. However, for most people it will be a place to skip through as quickly as possible. Nowadays, the sea-facing Kordon is a great place for jogging, cycling, walking the dog and just plain lounging about, while the northern district of Alsancak is being steadily restored …

» Kusadasi

Kusadasi Tours, Travel to Turkey

About 13mi (20km) from Selçuk is Kusadasi, which, at first glance, is as much of a shameless tourist trap as any cruise-ship port. In summer, it becomes swollen out of all recognition with package holiday-makers from Europe. However, outside high season it is a laidback town with some lovely beaches and stunning views. A room at a nice pension with a rooftop terrace makes a great base for excursions to the ancient cities of Ephesus, Priene, Miletus and Didyma …

Marmaris Tours, Travel to Turkey

Cocooned between the swooping sea cliffs of neighboring Adaköy and the pine-clad mountains of the Bozburun Peninsula, Marmaris is a prime spot on Turkey's Turquoise Coast, with the glittering ocean omnipresent. Endowed with a balmy Mediterranean climate and powder-fine beaches, you'd be forgiven for spending your entire visit by the coast, but the town is also famed for its foot-stomping nightlife and abundance of natural attractions …

Ankara Tours, Travel to Turkey

When Atatürk moved the Turkish capital from Istanbul to Ankara in 1923 he turned his back on the Bosporus, the spectacular Ottoman mosques and the Topkapi Palace. Modern Ankara has its inviting quarters - most notably the citadel area, which gets better by the year - but in the eyes of most visitors it will always play second fiddle to Istanbul. Originally called Angora, Ankara once flourished on the trade in the fine, soft hair of Angora goats …

Cappadocia Tours, Travel to Turkey

Cappadocia is one of those places you're unlikely to ever forget. Cappadocia is a natural wonder with underground cities and a moon-like setting. It has a wild, rocky landscape of cliffs and valleys and caves that were formed from the wind and water eroding soft volcanic rock. This is a place you'll want to see from all angles: on the ground walking through its valleys, underground in its caves, from the air in a balloon, and perhaps even from rafting along its river. …

Antalya Tours, Travel to Turkey

Set on the Gulf of Antalya (Antalya Körfezi), this burgeoning city commands a superb position overlooking a sweeping beach towards the soaring Bey Mountains. Sophisticated, liberal Antalya has all the amenities of big city life - fine museums, restaurants, bars and clubs - but has also preserved the charming old quarter of Kaleiçi, whose walls once repelled raiders but now serve to keep traffic out of its narrow streets and courtyards …

G Adventures to Turkey

Meeting place of the Eastern and Western worlds, Turkey has always been a land of contrasts. Cosmopolitan Istanbul stood at the head of the Christian Roman (Byzantine) Empire for 1000 years, while its Islamic successor the Ottomans ruled the Mediterranean and beyond for six centuries more. This long Christian and Islamic history has left a legacy of historical sites …
