Where to travel in Turkey - The highlights:

There are many fascinating cities and unique landscapes to visit during your trip to Turkey. Here are some of the main highlights in our Turkey travel guide section: byzantine columns in the underground water resevoireThe magnificent city of Istanbul, on the waters of the Bosphorus, historically an imperial capital and seat of the Byzantine, Roman and Ottoman empires. Here alone resides some of the most striking excesses from the past – Topkapi Palace, the Blue Mosque and the Hagia Sophia Museum. For more information see our Istanbul travel guide here. Also recommended for Bosphorus is the opportunity to charter a small yacht to yourselves with us with a private Bosphorus tour of Istanbul on Zoe Yacht. The Aegean Coast of Turkey is crisscrossed with ruins of a multitude of Greco-Roman ancient cities, and by far the most amazing is the beautiful white marbled ancient city of Ephesus, one of the world’s grandest and still most intact Greco Roman city. (Also Pamukkale, Aphrodisias, Bodrum). For tips on visiting this region see our Aegean travel guide section here. Dramatic geological contrasts and spectacular conical rock formations of varying colors embellish the volcanic landscape throughout the Cappadocia Region in Central Anatolia – home of St. Basil, explore Byzantine rock-cut churches with stunning frescoes and valleys honeycombed with underground cities - stay in a cave style hotel and enjoy the local art, dancing and wine. Read more at the Cappadocia Travel Guide section here. east turkey travelDiscover the myriad of ancient city rock tombs, shore side ruins and exotic flowers toppling over whitewashed houses that speckle the scenic mountainous coastline of little inlets, private coves and dazzling white sandy beaches of the Turkish Mediterranean Coast. Soak up warm rays aboard a relaxing ‘gulet’ yacht cruise with many available water sports along this sparkling turquoise coast. A perfect region to extend or conclude your trip to Turkey. See more tips at our Mediterrean Turkey guide here. A wild and contrasting landscape is the series of lush verdant plains, tobacco and tea plantations set among the snow-capped peaks of the Black Sea Region, where the traditional rural village life high up on the surrounding mountain plateaus can be experienced. The coast is dotted with beautiful stony white beaches, old castles, abandoned churches, picturesque villages with traditional wooden houses, and the surreal cliff-clinging Sumela Monastery. Read more about travel to the Black Sea here. For more adventurous and off the beaten track itineraries, travel to the mystique and ancient civilizations of East & South-East Anatolia. Climb mountain peaks with colossal standing stone heads at sunset, explore ancient kervansarais while travelling along the old Silk Road to China, the abandoned ruins of ancient Armenian, Urartian and Selcuk cities, isolated hilltop palaces, stunning archeological mosaics and bee-hive style houses.
