A trip to Istanbul is the first thing that comes to our minds when listening to the word Turkey.
Full of ancient monuments, vibrant cities, oriental tastes and a mosaic of civilizations, the neighboring country gives us many reasons for unforgettable escapes. The legendary Istanbul, one of the most populated cities in the world, is synonymous with Ayia Sofia, the local cuisine and the vibrant lifestyle. Enjoy a cruise in Bosporus, visit the Prince’s islands and introduce yourself to the delicious local gastronomy.
Apart from Istanbul, you should definitely visit Cappadocia, the country of beautiful horses, in central Turkey, the ancient city of Ephesus that is a breath away from Kusadasi, and the famous cotton castles in Pamukkale.
