Top 6 Places To Visit In Turkey

Our work experience superstar Amelia reveals her favourite places in one of her favourite European countries


Gallipoli

Pay respects and learn about the heartbreak and distressing history of Gallipoli. Visit the Gallipoli War Museum and Lone Pine Cemetery, where one of the most famous battles of the Gallipoli Campaign in World War I was fought. Additionally, learn to snorkel or scuba dive in ANZAC Cove,  and take a stroll along North Beach which is directly adjacent.

Cappadocia

Fall in love with the UNESCO World Heritage Site known as 'Cappadocia', a fascinating region where large rock formations are clustered in rose hued valleys. Wake up before the sun and experience the surreal sight of Cappadocia's sunrise in a hot air balloon. Stay in the excellent accommodation found in the region, in particular, the atmospheric cave hotels, with rooms built into the 'fairy chimney's' - an unforgettable experience. On the specially designed itinerary of Cappadocia On Foot, traveller's can experience the amazing sights the best way, on foot.

Fethiye

Enjoy the scenic views of Fethiye's stunning coastline, explore the old town, nearby rock tombs and visit local markets that overflow with fresh produce. A favourite is the Turkey Walk and Sail, enjoying walks along shepherds trails, ancient ruins and swimming in the clear blue waters. Or, discover the beauty of the Lycian Coast on the Lycian Coast Cycle, beginning in Fethiye.

Ephesus Ancient Ruins

Stay in the gorgeous, communal town of Selcuk and experience the truly authentic Turkish cuisine, with the town situated just a stroll away from the renowned, ancient ruins of Ephesus. The abundance of the remains reflect Turkey's rich history, largely consisting of the previous Greek and Roman Empire. The Temple of Hadrian is a must-see, built nearly two thousand years ago.

Pamukkale (Pools)

Visit the amazing Pamukkale, natural salt pools on your way to or from the city of Denizli. Take a dip, and continue the magical journey by hopping from pool to pool. Furthermore, indulge in a meal from nearby eateries and slowly make your way to the top of the extraordinary wonder.

Istanbul

Commonly thought to be the capital of Turkey, Istanbul is a lively city which stretches through the borders of both Europe and Asia. Indulge in the holy kebabs and decadent baklava available city-wide or visit a traditional Turkish Bazaar. Tour the Blue Mosque, and climb to the top of Galata tower for exceptional views. Experience a Turkish bath, or alternatively take part in the fine dining.
