Istanbul is a city simply drenched in history, having been the capital city of the Roman, Byzantine and Ottoman Empires. Istanbul boasts some of the world's finest examples of Turkish and Byzantine architecture, world-class shopping, a kaleidoscope of delightful Turkish and international food options from street food to fine dining. The capital of culture not only for Turkey but for Southeastern Europe, Istanbul masterfully combines old-world charm with modern cosmopolitan vibrancy.
The Blue Cruise takes in Turkey's delightful Turquoise Coast. Starting in Fethiye, famous for its mud baths and the Amintas Rock Tombs, continuing through to the Oludeniz Blue Lagoon, the town of Kas with its delicious seafood, charming cobblestone streets, artisanal jewellery stores and Roman ruins, the sunken city of Kekova before finishing in Olympos, where you can marvel at the Chimera eternal flame and sleep in a treehouse.
Cappadocia presents one of the most outlandish and otherworldly landscapes you are likely to ever see. Here, “fairy chimneys” rise out of the ground, rock formations created by millions of years of erosion. Houses, churches and monasteries are carved into the soft Cappadocian rock, and there are vast, complex underground cities – some of them as many as 13 levels deep! The low winds in Cappadocia create ideal conditions for hot-air ballooning, and with the spectacular scenery to take in, Cappadocia is undoubtedly the world's premier hot-air ballooning location.
