comforts of modern Turkey in the shopping malls, galleries and clubs alongside the exotic appeal of the traditional Turkish bazaars, palaces, coffee houses and mosques. The natural beauty of the city plus the pleasant Mediterranean climate complete the picture. The old city of Istanbul is located on the Sultanahmet peninsula.

Cappadocia

Cappadocia, Turkey

has a varied nature. The peat-stone landscapes were created millions of years ago by various volcanic eruptions. This, combined with the limestone rocks with karst features, has resulted in a rugged, colourful face. Explore the area and pass large open-air museums, underground cities, the Kaymakli, beautiful rock formations and impressive cone houses. Kayseri is the largest and most important city in this region. Opt for a camel ride or follow hiking trails through the fascinating area.

Ephesus

Remains of antique temple dedicated to Emperor Hadrian in Ephesus, Izmir province, Turkey

The Turkish city of Ephesus consists of Hellenistic and Roman settlements, an ancient city where ruins often surround you. These used to be important monuments from the Roman Imperial period. You can still visit the Celsus Library and the grand theatre. Unfortunately,

many monuments have been destroyed, like the famous Temple of Artemis, one of the Seven Classical Wonders of the World. Ephesus is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and the best-preserved ancient city in Turkey. The city is the second-largest preserved city in the Roman Empire after Rome. The marble streets, art and statues have a high architectural value. This also applies to the mosaic sculptures and beautiful fountains. Although there have been many excavations, much remains unclear about the history of Ephesus. People are still discovering these historical things.
