Visiting Turkey is like going to an exhibit and seeing snapshots of centuries of history all in one place. But in this case, you get to dive to the sunken cities, touch the ruins of Troy, shop in the bazaars and stand in the Grand Theater where St. Paul preached. Even if you’re not a history buff, remnants of the Ottoman, Roman and Byzantine empires are sure to impress.
Make a stop at the Grand Bazaar in Istanbul and haggle for saffron at the neighboring Spice Bazaar. Head for the Turquoise Coast, gear up for some mountain climbing or bask in the beauty of Istanbul's Blue Mosque. Head to Cappadocia for some of the most stunning (and strangest) landscapes you’ll ever see. With its lunar-like rock formations, underground cities, cave churches and houses carved into the sides of cliffs, you’ll feel like you’re on another planet.
If the history, activity, natural beauty, and mix of cultures still don’t have you spinning around like a whirling dervish, the strong Turkish coffee will. Enjoy a cup in a taverna, follow it up with some Turkish Delight and wind down at a traditional bath.
Get lost in the Grand Bazaar in Istanbul and visit the Blue Mosque and the Hagia Sophia.
Sleep in a café and explore the underground cities in Cappadocia.
Sample the strong Turkish Coffee and Turkish Tea, and watch a whirling Dervish spin.
Stay in Selcuk and visit the ancient city of Ephesus, one of the 7 wonders of the ancient world.
