Natural beauty and a rich architectural heritage reflect a unique history.
Turkey could be defined as the centre of many ancient civilisations. Its appeal lies not only in its unique monuments, but also in a warm climate and turquoise waters that make the country one of the most popular destinations for beach holidays.
On the shores of the Bosphorus, the city that straddles two continents is a unique, magical destination that no traveller should miss out on. Experiences and landscapes straight out of the One Thousand and One Nights await you in this city in addition to incredible views where you can take in mosques, minarets and giant bridges that you can see from our hotels in Istanbul.
Among its most popular and emblematic buildings you can find the Hagia Sophia, the Blue Mosque, the Basilica Cistern and Galata Tower. The Grand Bazaar is another place that you can wander through and practise your haggling skills, while the Bosphorus offers you the opportunity for short cruises to see the city from another perspective.
Turkey offers landscapes, experiences and activities for everyone and with endless possibilities to enjoy this historic country. Though you might think Istanbul is the capital of Turkey, Ankara is actually the capital city.
Ankara is also the perfect starting point to explore one of the most amazing landscapes not just in the country, but in the entire world: Cappadocia. You are sure to be awestruck by the incredible landscapes featuring the unique geological formations of the Göreme Valley. Once you arrive, you can choose to enjoy an excursion in a hot air balloon or to explore one of the underground cities.
A trip through Turkey can also include places such as Konya or Pamukkale, famous for their thermal hot springs, and Ephesus, an archaeological site that ranks among the most impressive in the world.
