Cappadocia - Pamukkale - Ephesus - Gallipoli and Troy by Bus from Istanbul

Let’s start to walk into the depths of history and mystery. Our first 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. 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 next visit with a UNESCO World Heritage Site: Troy. Feted down through the ages, Troy is the legendary setting for the long Trojan War, a city only finally conquered when Greek soldiers hid themselves within the “peace offering” of the Trojan Horse to gain access to the city. Continue with Gallipoli. The legendary story of the Trojan wars took place here; the Ottoman sultans built defensive castles that still lord over the coast today; and in the modern era, this is the somber site of World War I’s Gallipoli Campaign, the most famous battle between Allied forces and the Ottoman army of the war.
