If you want to get away for the holidays and really enjoy something special, here’s a tour you should consider – 5 days of Awesomeness in Turkey.
Arriving in Istanbul (which I vote as the coolest city on the planet) you will then head to Ephesus and check out some of the best preserved ancient Greek ruins in the world and the home of the Virgin Mary, then head to Cappadocia to see the amazing fairy chimneys and the ancient Christian caves and churches, from there you will go back to Istanbul. So, in one trip you have Muslim, Greek, and Christian temples not to mention some of the most awesome scenery in the world.
Your five days start with private transfers from Ataturk Airport in Istanbul and then an early flight to Izmir where you will be taken by private car for an incredible day in Ephesus where you will visit the House of Virgin Mary – Greco & Roman City of Ephesus – Temple of Artemis, Ephesus Museum, the Greek Village of Sirince and have lunch and leisure in beautiful Selcuk at your hotel.
The next day you will journey to the surreal landscape of Pamukkale – Pamukkale means Cotton Castle in Turkish because of its white Travertine formations. It was declared a World Heritage Site in 1988. For thousands of years people have bathed in its thermal pools, including Cleopatra. The travertine formations and healing thermal waters will sooth your mind, body, and soul. You will visit the ancient city of Hieropolis.
You will then return to your hotel in Selcuk and have a chance to enjoy the funky cool little town.
On the fourth day, you will tour Cappadocia and explore the panorama of Göreme, the famous Derinkuyu Underground City, walk in the Ihlara Valley, visit Belisrma Village for Lunch and then head to the Selimiye Monastery before heading back to the charming town of Goreme for dinner and a night in your cave!
On the fifth day you will begin with a sunrise balloon trip over Cappadocia and have a private tour of Cappadocia where you will visit the Göreme Open air Museum, Uçhisar Castle, Avanos Pa?aba?i, the incredible Devrent Valley, Ürgüp and the family Fairy Chimneys. An evening flight after private transfer will take you back to Istanbul where a driver will meet you and take you to your hotel.
