Turkey & the Turquoise Coast
Additional tours are being offered on the following dates:
October 9 - October 23, 2010
Activity Level: Active
Turkey—where Europe and Asia meet to form "the cradle of civilization"—is yours to discover. Start in Istanbul with its myriad riches including Topkapi Palace and the Blue Mosque. Explore the ruins at ancient Troy, Pergamum, and Ephesus, one of the world’s best-preserved classical sites. Board a privately chartered gulet yacht and spend five days cruising along the exquisite Turquoise Coast. Discover secluded coves and hidden sites including quaint fishing villages, striking Roman ruins, a Greek ghost town, and a 6th-century Byzantine monastery. Conclude in the seaside resort of Antalya, with visits to ancient Perge and the Archaeological Museum.
Our trip was an outstanding balance of various activities including visiting museums, sailing, hiking, sightseeing, relaxing and getting to know the local Turkish people and their lifestyle.
