What You’ll Love…

Discover Turkey — Unearth Istanbul's wealth of treasures, taste your way through Turkey and plunge into Pammukale's Cotton Fortress

Begin the tour by immersing yourself in thousands of years of history in Istanbul. Blessed with rich culinary heritage, the thick aroma of Turkish coffee prepared in a cezve, and ancient architecture — including the Hippodrome, where chariot races were enjoyed by Byzantine Emperors, and the dazzling Blue Mosque — Istanbul is the perfect launchpad for discovering Turkey.

Marvel at the wealth of ancient Hittite artefacts hidden within the Museum of Anatolian Civilisations and pay homage to the Father of Modern Turkey at the Mausoleum of Ataturk in the capital of Ankara, before losing yourself in the sprawl of maze-like tunnels carved into the underground city of Saratli.

Admire the landscape of the Cappadocia region, with its tall volcanic spires, high plateaus and deep valleys gloriously bathed in light, as you visit Göreme and partake in a pottery-making class in Avanos, a provincial clay town.

Take in the surreal and beautiful landscapes of the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Pamukkale, with its tiered white lime terraces and thermal pools, and see the ancient spa centre of Hierapolis. Unearth the coastal splendour of Kusadasi, visit the ancient Medical Centre Asclepion at the base of the Pergamon acropolis and feast with locals in a traditional Pergamon village.

Visit ancient Troy, a city of storied proportions and home to a recreation of the fabled Trojan wooden horse, and witness the battlefields and historic World War I memorial sites of Gallipoli. See ANZAC Cove (famous for the ANZAC landing on 25 April 1915), Lone Pine Cemetery and Chunuk Bair, where the battle between the British Empire and the Ottoman defenders took place
