ARRIVAL IN ISTANBUL
1
ARRIVAL IN ISTANBUL

After your arrival in the city that was once Byzantium (and later Constantinople), your English-speaking assistant will meet you at the airport and transfer you to your hotel in one of our private vehicles.  He will help you with the check-in, inform you about all the details of your trip, offer a brief presentation of the city and its day to day life and answer your questions. The rest of the day will be free for you to relax and start enjoying this stunning city.

Alternatively, you can join the Night Cruise on the Bosphorus with Dinner & Show or enjoy an hour's pampering at the Hamam Cimberlitas.

Greca Tip: You can also head to Ortaköy, the area for upmarket chic, where you will find a strip of stands serving kumpir, Turkey's answer to the jacket potato. Pick your spud and toppings and savour the seaside views while you eat on your feet.

FROM ISTANBUL TO ANKARA

After a filling breakfast at your hotel, you will enjoy some free time in the city. We will then pick you up in our deluxe air-conditioned bus and, past the Intercontinental bridge, you will travel to Ankara, the capital of Turkey. Ankara is as an important trade center and a major intersection in the road network of the country. Upon your arrival you will have dinner and a good night's sleep.

Greca Tip: Wander around the cobblestone streets and check out the shops located within old Ottoman houses for an experience that is far removed from the city’s hectic energy.

The first is the significant Museum of Anatolian Civilizations with an exhibition of Palaeolithic, Neolithic, Hittite, Phrygian Urartu civilizations and the Mausoleum of Kemal Ataturk, a national hero and founder of the Turkish Republic.

After leaving the Mausoleum of Ataturk, you will depart for Cappadocia. Along the way, you will visit one of the underground cities built by Christian communities to protect themselves from Arab attacks and where you can see the well-preserved stables, common rooms, meeting and small rooms for families.

Arrival in the Cappadocia region, dinner at your hotel and accommodation.

Greca Tip: During your visit of the Ataturk Mausoleum, don't forget to enter all sections and see vivid displays, which symbolize the existence and high ideals of the Turkish nation and state.

CAPPADOCIA

CAPPADOCIA

This day will be fully dedicated to the beautiful region of Cappadocia.  After a filling breakfast you will start by visiting the Göreme Valley, its open-air museum with the villages of prehistoric cave dwellers and underground cities.  It is here where the ideas of Christianity were unified by St Basil the Great and his Christian brothers. You will visit the churches, chapels and monasteries, with their ancient frescoes painted on the walls.

Your next destination will be the troglodite village of Uçhisar and the valley of Avcilar, which has a spectacular landscape.

You will continue through the Devrent valley, also known as Imaginary Valley, with its pointed, mushroom-like structures, many of which are said to resemble animal shapes. Finally, you will visit local artisan workshops, such as carpet-making or jewelry shops with the popular translucent onyx stones.

You will return to your hotel, where you will enjoy dinner and spend the night.

Greca Tip: At sunrise fly over the historic cave dwellings of Goreme Town in a hot-air balloon or watch the balloons from the rooftop garden of your hotel.
