Turkey is a county of wide and varied opportunities. From spending the whole day napping on the beach to getting active in the mountains, spending days just basking in its history’s glory to eating some of the finest cuisines imaginable, there really is something for everyone.

History lovers – Istanbul

Even though Istanbul has something for everyone, it’s truly a city that is quite fascinating for those who appreciate history and all its magnificent remnants. Spend a few days in Sultanahmet and explore the major Istanbul icons, such as the Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace or the Grand Bazaar. To really become acquainted with the past, visit the fascinating Istanbul Archeology Museum with its three buildings that include items from the pre-Islamic period all the way to the Anatolian and Ottoman tiles and ceramics and everything in between. Of course, apart from the major sights, history lovers will also be happy to know that Istanbul has plenty of lesser-known sights that are just as interesting as the tourist favourites. Spending a day wandering around the historic Balat neighbourhood, taking a ferry to the islands to see a wealth of Ottoman-era mansions or simply spending some time in the Beylerbeyi Palace are just some great examples.

Wine lovers – Urla and Bozcaada
