Add to that the sparkling Turquoise Coast, the battlefields and memorials of Gallipoli, and you have a whole load of great reasons to visit this amazing country.


Istanbul is the only city in the world that spans two continents: Europe and Asia. The city embodies mystery, intrigue, and glamour. Like a lost and forgotten kingdom, Istanbul is waiting to be discovered again. The city is an impressive sight, located as it is, on a site dominating both the Golden Horn and the Bosphorus, and brimming with fine monuments and artifacts of the Byzantine and Ottoman era. It is also an ideal base for day tours and mini-packages to discover the other stunning regions of Turkey.


Cappadocia boasts one of the most incredible landscapes on earth. Formed over thousands of years, the wind and rain has worn down the soft volcanic rocks to leave a landscape of hidden valleys and spectacular rock formations.
The discerning traveller will be thrilled by the visits of the frescoed churches in the Goreme Open Air Museum, the underground settlements at Kaymakli and Derinkuyu, the Roman rock-cut castles of Uchisar and Orthisar and the many other hidden treasures of the magical valleys. A hot air balloon ride at sunrise over this magical landscape is a unique experience and is a once-in-a-lifetime must-do.


A visit to Ephesus - once the commercial centre of the ancient world - is a must-do of any visit to Turkey. The city, whose wealth and patronage supported its splendid architectural program, was dedicated to the goddess Artemis.


Pamukkale is one of the most interesting places in the world, justly famous not only for the entrancing beauty of its unique calcium formations and sparkling white travertines but also for its historical remains. Hierapolis is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The hot springs there have been used as a spa since the 2nd century BC.

Turquoise Coast

The Mediterranean, Aegean and the Black Seas, as well as the Sea of Marmara, surround Turkey to the north, west and south. With over 8300 kilometers of coastline and four seas, Turkey is a treasure chest of coves, inlets, bays and beaches. You can have a fun family day at the Aquapark, a day out on a boat cruise, try scuba-diving or paragliding, visit some of the typical Turkish villages or enjoy a Blue Cruise through some of Turkey's most beautiful islands.
