Legendary Turkey

Witness the grandeur of Istanbul’s Blue Mosque

Exotic sights, scents, and sounds await where Europe and Asia meet—Turkey.

Your Turkish sojourn begins in Istanbul. Highlights of this culturally diverse city include the always-rambunctious spice bazaar, the Blue Mosque, Hagia Sofia, and Topkapi Palace.

Ferry across the Dardanelles to immerse yourself in the legendary ruins of Troy before exploring Pergamum, a once powerful city of ancient Greece. 

Reaching Izmir, spend a day touring the ruins of Ephesus, including its acclaimed “houses of the rich.” Later, enjoy lunch in the rustic village of Sirince.

Next, board a privately chartered gulet yacht, and enjoy a three-day cruise on the exquisite Turquoise Coast. On this “blue voyage,” you’ll discover secluded coves and hidden sights, including the Sunken Baths of Cleopatra.  

Disembarking in Fethiye, journey through the Taurus Mountains to your final destination, seaside Antalya. Visit its acclaimed archaeological museum, wander Old Town, and tour the ruins of ancient Perge.
