Turkey Istanbul, Cappadocia & the Coast Cultural Discovery
Discover the wonders of Turkey, a country boasting some of the most diverse and rich cultural heritage sites in the world. Sail across Asia and Europe in Istanbul and marvel at the Ottoman royal collections of the Topkapi Palace. Take a flight to Cappadocia to hike the moon-like valleys and go deep down to underground cities, while exploring the hidden rock-hewn churches of the Byzantine monks. From walking on the Lycian Way to swimming in the ancient city of Simena, this 12-day trip blends the very best of Turkey.
  • Visit UNESCO World Heritage Sites, including Topkapi Palace in Istanbul and Göreme Open Air Museum in Cappadocia
  • Marvel at the beauty of the river canyon at Ihlara, the 16th-century tiles in Istanbul, and the largest intact amphitheater of Asia Minor at Aspendos
  • Hike where Alexander the Great resided in the ancient city of Phaselis, swim among the ruins of the sunken city Simena, and enjoy every bit of changing colors in the Mediterranean Sea
