Turkey Encompassed 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.
Ankara is located in the heart of Turkey, and is the capital and second largest city.
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.
Home to the mesmerising Whirling Dervish sect of Islam, Konya has strong theological roots, remarkable architecture, a historical market district and excellent museums.
With cobblestone streets and beautifully preserved Ottoman-style buildings, Antalya's Old Town lies along Turkey's Mediterranean coast and looks on to picturesque mountains.
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.
Enjoy the laidback atmosphere of Fethiye and stroll the impressive harbour filled with traditional gulet, fishing boats and cruise boats that day-trip the pretty harbour islands.
The arresting cascade of travertines and nearby hot springs have attracted visitors to Pamukkale since ancient times.
Selcuk is our base for discovering Ephesus, former capital of the Eastern Roman empire and the best-preserved ancient city in Turkey.
Historian's are still at odds as to whether or not this fable or indeed the battle itself is stuff of lore or reality.
With 2,944 mosques within the city alone, Istanbul's theological and archeological treasures are wonderful to explore; the Blue Mosque and Hagia Sophia being two of the more outstanding.
