ETBT - The Best of Turkey

This trip is ideal for the traveller who is short on time but wants to experience as much of Turkey's stunning scenery and fascinating history as possible. Begin the journey at the WWI battlefield of Gallipoli, then leap into Greek myths and explore the remains of the legendary city of Troy before strolling along the streets of Ephesus. Don't miss the remarkable white cliff pools of Pamukkale before boarding a comfortable and convenient flight back to Istanbul. Return refreshed and ready to explore the city's bazaars, mosques, and tea houses.
