Turkey truly offers something for everyone. Monuments and landmarks that depict historic tales from ancient times through the 20th century – Turkey holds some of the most impressive Biblical sites in the world. The incredible scenery is captivating, from the Bosphorus River and incredible Mediterranean coastline, to the fairytale like rock chimneys in Cappadocia. And the sites are all accented with savory cuisine, captivating cultures and exotic dances (Turkey is home to the whirling dervishes).
Turkey is welcoming to independent travelers and families, sightseers and active adventurers. You can easily fill two weeks, or get a rich taste on an extended stop-over. Lakani World Tours can create a travel itinerary best suited for you – depending on your time, interests, and budget. Here are the main highlights:
Istanbul – Ancient Constantinople, the opulent capital city sits on the line between Europe and Asia. Cruise the Bosphorus River that divides the city. Explore the incredibly varied and vast Grand Bazaar. And be sure to tour the Haghia Sofia, Topkapi Palace and the iconic Blue Mosque.
