A unique fusion of the East and West, Turkey’s cultural roots stem from almost every major Eurasian empire. On your Turkey vacation, discover ancient Greek ruins, Byzantine and Ottoman palaces, Mediterranean resorts, and other-worldly landscapes. Begin in Istanbul, the ancient city on the Bosporus Straits, and visit the Hagia Sofia, Blue Mosque, Tokapi Palace, Roman Aqueducts, Sultanahmet, bustling Taksim Square and the rambling Grand Bazaar. Relax at a traditional Turkish bath, then walk through the Hippodrome of Constantinople. The fairy chimney rock formations of Cappadocia are a must-see on any tour of Turkey, and don’t miss the Goreme Museum Open Air Museum and the Kaymakli Underground City. In the modern capital, Ankara, see the huge mausoleum of Kemal Ataturk and visit the Museum of Anatolian Civilizations. The beach resorts of the Turquoise Coast attract sun seekers to Antalya and Izmir. One of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient world, the ancient Greek city of Ephesus and its famed Temple of Artemis lies just south of Kusadasi on the Mediterranean coast.
