Best of Asia and Europe
Turkey, straddling Europe and Asia, is truly a gateway to both these continents. Its history, which spans across thousands of years, is replete with ancient civilizations from the East and the West, such as the Persians, the Romans, Ottomans, Greeks, and many others, who have left their footprints on its soil. One of its main cities, Istanbul is the epitome of this cultural mélange, with its ancient bazaars, world famous cuisine and its colourful people. The majestic Hagia Sophia rivals the historic Blue Mosque, making them two of the most stunning pieces of architecture that define the city. A private, luxurious yacht cruise down the Bosporus strait will take you past old Ottoman villas, castles and fortresses as you take the route that connects the two continents. From a brief city stopover at Istanbul to a two week long fascinating discovery that includes Ankara, Antalya, Cappadocia, Pamukkale and Izmir, Pure Travel can customise your experiential Turkey holiday to be exactly what you would like it to be.
