per person in a triple room From 840

This package is ideal for the travelers that wish to immerse their selves in a cultural blend of nearly 3,000 years of history, from Roman ruins to Byzantine marvels, from Latin empires to Ottoman treasures. Start your acquaintance with the Anatolian world from Istanbul, a place of collision between the oriental and the occidental, a city that houses the best out of two continents. Experience a city of juxtapositions between the comforts of this modern metropolis, the malls, galleries and clubs, and the delights of traditional Turkish bazaars, palaces, taverns and mosques. Continue your trip with places that have so much to offer to their guests; breathtaking natural beauties, steadily improving hotel and touristic infrastructure and a tradition of hospitality and competitive prices. Enjoy amazing archaeological sites and beautiful landscapes, from which the lunar-like landscape of Cappadocia stands out, ornated with conical rock formations also known as “fairy-chimneys” that could have been plucked out of a child’s imagination. Stroll on Turkey’s straits and famous bazaars and find carpets, kilims, rugs, gift stores, spices, jewellery, ceramics and much more. Turkey is, above anything else, a huge open-air museum, a repository of all the civilizations nurtured by the soils of Anatolia.
