Istanbul - Pamukkale - Ephesus and Cappadocia

This tour will lead you to mystery and history. Coveted by empires across the centuries, straddling both Europe and Asia, Istanbul is one of the world’s great metropolises. We will visit Hagia Sophia, Byzantine, Hippodrome, Blue Mosque, Grand Bazaar, Topkapi Palace in İstanbul. Pamukkale is another extraordinary region. Besides travertines, the great Roman amphitheater of Hierapolis should not be missed, and lies just above the travertines. Ephesus is an ancient Greek city and a large archaeological site, also famous for its Temple of Artemis. In Ephesus, you will walk down the well-preserved Roman streets, gaze at the mighty monuments, and soak up the ancient soul of this ruined city. Our last visit will be Cappadocia with its valley, canyon, hills and unusual rock formation. Cappadocia is a work of art that was formed by the wind and water slowly chipping the rock in thousands of years.
