    Cappadocia, Ephesus and the Coast

    Comprehensive itinerary includes the best-known sites and sailing on the Mediterranean

    Explore Turkey's buzzing bazaars, pristine coastline, rural villages and fairy-tale Cappadocian landscapes.  Immerse yourself in historic and cosmopolitan Istanbul.  Enjoy the attractions that have drawn travelers here for millenia.  Begin with Istanbul and the Bosphorus, continue to  Fethiye and Oludeniz, exploring small islands of the Mediterranean while staying aboard a traditional gulet. Visit the Roman ruins at Ephesus, the mountain towns of Sirince and Gokcealan, the spa town of Pamukkale, and Konya and the whirling dervishes. Behold the amazing region of Cappadocia with its otherworldly rock formations, cave churches, and the ancient underground city of Kaymakli.  While touring, be sure to schedule time for a hammam (Turkish bath) treatment, sample the sweets and the spices, listen for the atmospheric calls to prayer, and find at least one opportunity to relax at a sidewalk cafe with cay (tea) and nargileh (water pipe), or a Turkish coffee and some pistachio baklava.

    "We've been to 48 countries, and it's hard to see how our JOURNEYS Turkey trip could have been improved. It was OUTSTANDING. The guide and driver took care of everything in a timely and thoughtful way. Hotels were exceptional, interesting and intriguing. Cappadocia, Aphrodesias, the Toros mountains… all spectacular! Beyond the Bosphorus, April 2012
