ITINERARY & FEATURES

Day 1: Istanbul
On arrival at your hotel, spend your day at leisure; perhaps visit Istanbul’s Ottoman mosques or Byzantine churches, or soak up the atmosphere of its world-famous souks (markets).

Overnight: 4-Star Momento Hotel in Istanbul

Day 2: Istanbul (B, L)
Enjoy breakfast and then head out on a full-day tour of Istanbul by luxury minibus, taking in the top city attractions. First stop is the Blue Mosque – an elaborate mosque that dominates Istanbul’s skyline with its six minarets. Explore inside with your guide and marvel at the ceiling, consisting nearly entirely of bright blue tiles. Continue to Hagia Sophia, Istanbul’s Byzantine Church that was once a mosque and is now a museum. Stroll around inside and admire its Christian-period mosaics and relics from the Ottoman era.

After a break for a typical Turkish lunch of soup, meatballs or chicken and fresh fruit in town, continue your tour with a visit to Topkapi Palace – Turkey’s biggest palace and most important museum with numerous artifacts that date back to the 15th century. Learn of the stylish sultans who once lived here, and then walk through town to see the Hippodrome, where raucous chariot races once were held. Spend your evening at leisure in Istanbul.

Overnight: 4-Star Momento Hotel in Istanbul

Day 3: Istanbul – Gallipoli -- Çanakkale (B, D)
After an early breakfast, pack up and leave your Istanbul hotel to travel by minibus to Çanakkale – your base for visiting Gallipoli. On arrival, check into your hotel and then depart for a tour of the Gallipoli battlefield sites of World War I.

During the war, the allied forces attacked Gallipoli with the aim of capturing Constantinople. The mission failed, and the battlefields, once the scene of bloodshed and uproar, are now somber memorials to fallen heroes. Visit Anzac Cove, where the more prominent battles were fought, and check out Lone Pine Australian Memorial and Chunuk Bair New Zealand Memorial. Other important sites that you’ll see include Brighton Beach, Beach Cemetery, Ari Burnu Cemetery and Johnston’s Jolly – home to original Allied and Turkish trenches. Return to Çanakkale for dinner in your hotel.

Overnight: 4-Star Iris Hotel in Çanakkale

Day 4: Çanakkale – Troy – Kusadasi (B, D)
Relax over your hotel breakfast in Çanakkale, and then travel with your guide to the ancient city of Troy for a look at its famous ruins. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, Troy has a fascinating history that dates back nearly 4,000 years. On a walking tour, hear tales of the Trojan War – an important Greek mythological story – and learn about the Trojan prince (Paris) who ran away with Zeus’ daughter (Helen) and sparked the Trojan War. Visit the wooden Trojan Horse that symbolizes the town and the war before taking a break for lunch in town (own expense).

Start your afternoon with a tour of the Acropolis of Pergamum in Bergama – a sleepy little village that brims with classical splendor. The remarkable buildings of the acropolis were designed to be seen from every point in the town, and they are incredible up close. See the Temple of Trajan with its marble columns and its 10,000-seat Roman theater. Return to Kusadasi and spend your evening at leisure.

Overnight: 4-Star Grand Onder Hotel in Kusadasi

Day 5: Kusadasi – Selcuk – Ephesus (B, D)
After breakfast your guide will pick you up by luxury minivan for your full-day trip to the ancient town of Ephesus – one of Europe’s best-preserved Classical cities. Conjure up images of the grandeur of Turkey under Roman rule on a tour around its ruins, seeing highlights like the Temple of Artemis, one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World.

Break for lunch (own expense) and then meet your guide for a visit to a traditional carpet-weaving store called Ege in the nearby town of Selcuk. Carpet-weaving skills are firmly rooted in Turkish history and you’ll hear all about this time-honored craft from your guide. See carpets being made by master weavers and learn how they dye the leather with natural ingredients. Return to Kusadasi by minibus and arrive back at your hotel in time for dinner.

Overnight: 4-Star Gran Onder Hotel in Kusadasi

Day 6: Kusadasi -- Pamukkale and Hierapolis (B, D)
Relax over breakfast, and then check out of your hotel to visit one of Kusadasi’s important leather factories -- Emelda Leather. Turkey is one of the world’s leading producers and exporters of leather goods, and Emelda produces some of Kusadasi’s finest leatherwork. Browse locally handcrafted goods, and shop for leather to take home.

After lunch (own expense), hop on board your minibus for an afternoon trip to the archeological site of Pamukkale. On a tour you’ll see Pamukkale’s magical white travertine rock terraces cascading down from the ancient city of Hierapolis. Walk around this UNESCO World Heritage Site with your guide, learning about the rock’s geology, and then head to the ancient city of Hierapolis for a refreshing dip in its naturally formed bathing pools (own expense). Walk around its crumbling ruins, admiring its Classical necropolis (Roman burial site) and gigantic Roman theater before checking in to your Pamukkale hotel in time for dinner.

Overnight: 5-star Colossae Thermal Hotel in Pamukkale

Day 7: Pamukkale – Bursa – Istanbul (B)
Enjoy breakfast, and then check out of your hotel for the journey north to Bursa – the Ottoman Empire’s sprawling ancient capital. Now a modern metropolis, Bursa has retained its original opulence with an abundance of magnificent monuments strewn about the city. On a tour, visit one of the finest examples -- Bursa’s Green Mosque (Yeşil Camii) -- and admire its Persian-inspired architecture. The mosque takes its name from its distinctive green-tinged interior walls, dotted with colorful fragments of original frescoes.

Continue your sightseeing tour to Bursa’s Silk Market (Kapalı Çarşı), and browse the stalls with your guide. Bursa marked the end point of Turkey’s old Silk Road, and as a place historically frequented by silk traders, the market is awash with this beautiful fabric. After exploring, hop back on board your minibus for the journey to Istanbul. Spend your evening in Istanbul at leisure.

Overnight: 4-Star Momento Hotel in Istanbul

Day 8: Istanbul – Istanbul Airport (B)
Enjoy breakfast, and then the morning is yours to spend at leisure in Istanbul – perhaps shopping for souvenirs or sightseeing independently. At a pre-arranged time in the afternoon, check out of your hotel and finish your tour with a transfer to either of Istanbul's two major airports or another Istanbul hotel.
