Turkey Discovery Overview
- 2013-01-01 - 2013-12-31
Travel to Turkey and discover the sights of Istanbul and Cappadocia
Forever at the crossroads between the East and West, Turkey sits comfortably between Europe and Asia - blending these distinct heritages into a culture that is uniquely its own. From the giant mosques of Istanbul to Antalya's Ottoman designed Old Town, or from the heights of Mt Nemrut to the Mesopotamian plains of Mardin - Turkey is full of architectural treats and timeworn landscapes that speak volumes of the country's storied history and significance. But don't take our word for it, hear it from the mouths of those who know these lands best, whether at the dinner table or on a village homestay - and discover a country that's full of diversity, friendly faces and plenty of memorable experiences.
