Istanbul
There may be no city on earth quite as beautiful – join your expert guide on a tour you’ll remember always….Marvel at the jewel encrusted treasures of Topkapi, tributes paid to the sultans for safe passage east and west, the Emperor Justinian’s Hagia Sophia covered in glorious mosaics, the Blue Mosque, the Byzantine Hippodrome (the bronze snake statue was a monument set up at Plataea to celebrate the Greek victory over the Persians; it’s traveled from Persia to Greece to Rome to here…). You’ll end the day exploring the fabled Grand Bazaar – under this roof, one can find anything from linens to gold…. Later, if you choose, we offer the option of a traditional dinner accompanied by belly and folk dancing. You’re here for another sunset…

Troy Pergamon Kusadasi
Today is a journey back in time – Achilles, Ajax, Hector and Agamemnon – these legendary figures were all given life when Heinrich Schliemann discovered ancient Troy. The foundations of western literature all derive from the stories of this place – the Iliad and the Odyssey. To gaze at the sea from its walls is an inspiring treat. Forward a thousand years, the Sanctuary of Asclepius at Pergamon will leave you with a true sense of the scale and grandeur of a classical city at its height. You’ll have dinner and spend the night in nearby Kusadasi.

Ephesus St. Mary’s House Kusadasi
Our destination is Ephesus, home to one of the wonders of the ancient world. That wonder, the temple of Artemis, is fugitive, but the site remains one of the grandest in the eastern Mediterranean – the theatre is thought to have held 24,000 citizens. We’ll travel on to the House of the Virgin Mary, long thought a place of refuge for the saint. The afternoon offers two optional tours – Sardis and the Greek ruins found there, or Sirince, a tiny hillside town known for its winemaking. Tonight we’re in Kusadasi.

This morning, after breakfast, we’ll make a trip to the coast – before we reach Antalya (where we’ll spend the night) we’ll make a stop at ancient Perge, a city central to the rise of Christianity. You’ll have the afternoon and evening to explore the seaside resort of Antalya – we’re here for the night

Antalya
Today is yours to explore, relax, recharge – you might consider one of our optional tours. We offer a lovely trip to the ancient coastal town of Phaselis – when you combine ancient ruins, a lush forest and a swimming beach, you have a special place. If ruins seem daunting, we offer the perfect alternative: a lazy cruise along the coast (all the sights, none of the walking….). We’ll take in a last sunset over the sea and sleep in Antalya.
Breakfast

Antalya Aspendos Konya
This morning we’ll head east, and explore the incredible Roman theatre in Aspendos – the best-preserved example anywhere.

Konya Cappadocia
Welcome to a landscape like no other… the rock formations known as “Fairy Chimneys” give this region an otherworldly quality. You’ll have a chance to explore the beautifully preserved 13th century caravansary at Agizkarahan and the underground city of Kaymakli, a place of refuge for the early Christian community. We’ll overnight in Cappadocia – if you choose to, join us for a performance by the famous ”Whirling Dervishes”
