East meets West
In Turkey, east meets west isn’t simply a construct; it’s a geographic truth. Historic Istanbul straddles the Bosphorus Strait, which forms the border between the European and Asian continents. Explore this fascinating city with a personal guide, discovering the Blue Mosque, the Hagia Sophia Church, the Byzantine Underground Cistern and the buzzing Grand Bazaar. Venture to Cappadocia, where you’ll find the famed fairy chimneys and troglodye cave dwellings (take a hot-air ballon ride at dawn for a mesmerizing experience). Travel to grand Ephesus, possiblly the most beautiful of all Roman discoveries. Experience the mystique of Whirling Dervishes and the tomb of the famous poet Rumi in Konya. Dine on an abundance of fresh seafood and distinctive Mediterranean specialties. The scope of history and culture here is indefinable and yet felt on a granular level as you lose yourself in the lanes and landscapes of the country.
