The Experiences – Explore vibrant cities and UNESCO World Heritage sites around the country

As you walk the streets of Istanbul, experience the vibrant atmosphere of this city, where the air is rich with local spices, the sites replete with ancient wonders, and colourful bazaars dazzle with a wonderful array of Ottoman jewellery, beautifully handcrafted ceramics and the heady aroma of Turkish coffee. Take in the stunning construction of the Blue Mosque, famous for its six minarets and magnificent interior, the Spice Market and the Hippodrome.

Visit Gallipoli, the scene of one of the most epic battles in World War I history, and pay your respects to the fallen soldiers in this unsuccessful attempt by the Allied Powers to control the sea route from Europe to Russia in World War I. See the famous Lone Pine Cemetry and Chunuk Bair where the battle between the British Empire and the Ottoman defenders took place.

Relive the heyday of Troy, the epic stage of heroes’ deeds, the 4000-year-old city immortalized in Homer’s epic poem 'The Iliad'. Discover the legendary center of the Trojan War before heading to Izmir - Turkey’s third largest city where you will spend a full day at leisure amid its rich and fascinating heritage.

Pay a visit to the city of Pamukkale, with its tiered white lime terraces and thermal pools, and wander the ruins of the ancient spa city of Hierapolis or the 'Holy City' - a striking archeological feat and UNESCO World Heritage Listed site.

Marvel at the unique landscape of the Cappadocia region with its tall volcanic spires, high plateaus and deep valleys gloriously bathed in light. The region is famous for its dreamlike vistas of hot air balloons filling the skies, and you’ll have the option to take a flight of your own if you’d like (additional charge applies).

When in Ankara, discover the mausoleum of Mustafa Kemal Ataturk, the leader of the Turkish War of Independence, also founder and first President of the Republic of Turkey.
