ISTANBUL - ANKARA - CAPPADOCIA

In the morning, your English-speaking assistant will pick you up to transfer you to Istanbul airport in order to board your flight to the capital of Turkey, Ankara. In Ankara you will visit the important Museum of Anatolian Civilizations and the Mausoleum of Kemal Ataturk, a national hero and the first president of the Turkish Republic. In the afternoon, you will head towards the magical region of Cappadocia, with its fairytale scenery and fascinating cavern architecture. On the way to your hotel, you will stop at one of the biggest underground cities scattered in the region.  Later on you will check in at your hotel, have dinner and enjoy a good rest.

Greca Tip: Consult with your guide about the possibility of joining in an unforgettable hot air balloon tour in Cappadocia (subject to weather conditions).

CAPPADOCIA - CENTRAL ANATOLIA
2
CAPPADOCIA - CENTRAL ANATOLIA

After a filling breakfast, you will dedicate the entire day to this wonderful region and the Turkish cities of Kirsehir, Nigde and Kayseri.

You will start at the town of Uçhisar, its troglodyte villages and the Underground City of Kaymakli, one of the largest underground settlements in the region.  You will continue towards the Göreme Valley with its open-air museum, its churches carved into the rock and the beautiful frescoes on their walls. In the afternoon, you will visit the Pasabag Valley, with its amazing landscape of cave dwellings and famous limestone fairy chimneys and Avanos, a potterers' town with its countless pottery factories that date back to the Hittites. In this town an underground city was revealed only recently and consists of three floors, homes, tunnels and places of worship. In the late afternoon you will return to your hotel for dinner and a good rest.

Greca Tip: Remember that, inside the caves, flash photography is not allowed so as not to damage the wall paintings.

FROM CAPPADOCIA TO PAMUKKALE

FROM CAPPADOCIA TO PAMUKKALE

Early in the morning, and after a delicious breakfast, you will depart for Pamukkale, meaning 'cotton castle' in Turkish. On your way there you will stop at the Old Palace and Medieval Fort of Caravanserai, built along the trade route that once lead to Persia. Here, in former times, merchants from the east and west used to rest, stock up on supplies and socialize.

Upon your arrival, you will have free time to familiarize yourself with the city and maybe visit Pamukkale's travertine terraces or white calcium cascades formed by the activity of the hot thermal springs in the area. You will enjoy dinner and a good rest at your hotel.

Greca Tip: You may use your free time to take a dip in the thermal pool of your hotel.

FROM PAMUKKALE TO KUSADASI

FROM PAMUKKALE TO KUSADASI

After breakfast you will visit Hierapolis, an ancient Hellenistic city declared by UNESCO a World Heritage Site. You will see the ruins of the Necropolis and the ancient Roman baths as well as the natural park known as "Cotton Castle", which, due to its natural beauty and the properties of its thermal waters, has been attracting visitors since pre-Christian times.

You will have free time for lunch and later you will visit the pilgrimage site of Meryamana, the house of the Virgin Mary, believed to be her last resting place. You will continue to Ephesus, the ancient Roman capital of Asia Minor, where Cleopatra, Marc Anthony and the apostle Saint Paul once roamed its streets. In Ephesus, you will admire the ruins of the Odeon, the Arch of Hercules, the Library of Celsus, the Greco-Roman Theater as well as the Agora and the Basilica of Saint John. In the late afternoon you will be transferred to your hotel, check in, have dinner and rest.

Greca Tip: The word Kusadasi means "Island of the Birds", although nowadays cruise ships dominate the scene!

KUSADASI - IZMIR - ISTANBUL
5
KUSADASI - IZMIR - ISTANBUL

Early in the morning, after a tasty breakfast, you will head towards Izmir to take the flight back to Istanbul. Upon arrival, you will be transferred to your hotel and the rest of the day will be free for you to explore the city at your own pace.

Greca Tip: As a going away gift you can look for hand-painted pottery and carpets made in Izmir or clothing in traditional style.  Don't be afraid to haggle as this is a common practice and vendors will expect you to do so for every item.
