What's included in this trip
Best of Turkey SummaryAdd to Shortlist
Adorned with treasure from all periods of human history, Istanbul is not only one of the world's most fascinating places, it's also one of its most mesmerising.
Once the capital of the Ottoman State, Bursa has a rich architectural heritage. It's also famous for being the home of the Iskander (doner) kebab.
Selcuk's claim to fame is its proximity to the amazing ruins of Ephesus, although it has its own charm with its orchards, forests and strong cultural roots.
The arresting cascade of travertines and nearby hot springs have attracted visitors to Pamukkale since ancient times.
Once a small Greek town, Kayakoy is now virtually a ghost town and maintained as a museum with fascinating ruins, especially of the two churches.
Sunken cities, Mediterranean beaches, a whitewashed Old Town, spectacular cuisine and a relaxed atmosphere are all found in delightful Kas. The clear, aquamarine waters off Kas are ideal for swimming, snorkelling and exploring the coast from a different angle - see Lycian tombs, a sunken city and secluded bays. Sloping down the hillside to reach the sea, Kas is a lovely Turkish town with cobblestone streets, quiet cafes, great diving and beautiful bays and beaches.
Home to the mesmerising Whirling Dervish sect of Islam, Konya has strong theological roots, remarkable architecture, a historical market district and excellent museums.
Sculptured by millenniums of erosion and centuries of human craftsmanship, Goreme is a truly magical place with fairy chimneys, rock-hewn churches and underground cities.
The wonderful city of Istanbul has an incredibly rich history, amazing array of architectural styles, a delectable cuisine, vibrant nightlife, fascinating culture and oodles of style.
