Sleepless in Turkey
6 –16 November, 2019 | 11 Days/10 Nights
Turkey is a charming land, where the earth is a work of art, filled with fairy chimneys and valleys, and the skies are an endless blue. There are hot air balloon rides at the crack of dawn and underground dwellings waiting to be explored.
We begin our trip in the historical city of Istanbul. Istanbul is everything you have read about, everything you have dreamt about, and more! It draws you in with its history, its magnificent architecture, its spice markets, and, in more recent times, its rocking night life.
Soak up the atmosphere in Istanbul – take a ride across the Bosphorus, shop, eat, and do all the wonderful things that your mind conjures up when you think about the city.
We then visit the ‘cotton castle’ – Pamukkale. Tread the path of the ancient Greco-Roman city of Hierapolis, its thermal springs, cascading milky pools, and well-preserved ruins, including a necropolis.
Walk the lanes of the 10th century Greek city of Ephesus, the site of a succession of ancient civilizations. It is considered one of the greatest outdoor museums of all times. The Temple of Artemis, the Library of Celsus, and a huge amphitheatre will truly leave you awestruck.
Experience the unique cave dwellings of Cappadocia by staying in a cave hotel! You are also in for a gastronomical treat when you sample local fare at a Cappadocian house in Mustafapasa. And, then, top everything off with a whirling dervish performance.
