Turkey Travel

Turkey is a land that offers many vacation attractions. It is a country that appeals to all tastes and budgets, with a tremendous range of archaeological, historic, scenic and recreational attractions blended with the traditional warm hospitality of the Turkish people.

There are many sites to enjoy and explore, such as Istanbul, a magical city; Izmir, center of resorts and archaeological attractions; Central Anatolia, with the modern capital of Ankara; the ancient rock-carved cities of Cappadocia; and Konya, mythic city of the Whirling Dervishes. In addition to these famous places, Turkey offers the Turquoise Coast, with the sunny beaches and clear blue water of the Mediterranean; the Black Sea region, with lovely untouched beaches and fishing villages; and Eastern Turkey where vast mountain scenery and the remains of ancient civilizations invite exploration.

Turkey is the setting for the Blue Voyage. One can explore archaeological remains of ancient civilizations from the sea rather than from the land. This idyllic cruise sails the beautiful waters of the Aegean and Mediterranean coasts, which have become very popular as well as for their skiing, rafting and mountain climbing opportunities.

Shopping is one of the great pleasures of a trip to Turkey, and there are a wide variety of beautiful things to purchase: high-fashion leather and suede goods, as well as copper, brass, jewelry, ceramics and hand-woven carpets and kilims.

Turkey also provides many modern hotels, where you can enjoy your stay and taste the rich Turkish cuisine at affordable prices.

Turkey has everything to make your visit most enjoyable. We are waiting to welcome you.
