What’s where?

Aegean Coast: dazzling ancient sites (not just Ephesus), unbelievable beaches and windsurfing on the Datca Peninsula. Gulet trips and nightlife around Bodrum.

Istanbul: straddling ancient and modern, Europe and Asia, an exotic skyline of mosques, palaces and bridges, funky bars and cafes, bustling bazaars and stylish shops.

Mediterranean Coast: The Toros mountains form a impressive backdrop to fine sandy beaches and some of the most crystal clear waters on the Med – a treat for both beach and history lovers.

For holidays and tours the most suitable months are: May, June, September, and in south Turkey, also October. On the south coast and, because of the reasonable climate, also on the Marmara Sea, the bathing season starts at the beginning of May, on the Aegean Sea about the end of May, and on the Black Sea in June. In almost all regions it ends in late autumn.
