Ferry to Turkey

Turkey sits between south-east Europe and western Asia, with the Black Sea to the north and Mediterranean Sea to the south.

As a culturally and geographically diverse country, it is an ideal destination for any type of holiday. It boasts dramatic mountains, ancient bazaars and of course, exquisite food.

The largest city, Istanbul, has cultural surprises hidden around every corner. With the magnificent Blue Mosque dominating the skyline, wander through the winding streets where you’re likely to stumble into the labyrinthine Grand Bazaar. Here you can spend hours drinking tea, bargaining over stall prices and simply immersing yourself in the Turkish way of life.

Away from the wonderfully chaotic bazaars is the Topkapi Palace, which provides a comprehensive insight into the nation’s history. It was once the court of the Ottoman Empire but now houses an array of fascinating artefacts, treasures, courtyards and palace rooms.

If you’ve had your fill of cultural history, stroll through the Istanbul Modern Museum to admire its impressive collection of 20th Century paintings and media exhibitions.

Along the southwestern coast lies one of the world’s finest walking trails, the Lycian Way. It is approximately 540 km of mountainous paths, stunning coastline views, pine forest treks and ancient Lycian ruins.

Eating together is a fundamental part of Turkish heritage and the cuisine itself hails mainly from Ottoman, Mediterranean and Middle Eastern influences. Cheese, eggs and spicy sausages comprise a typical breakfast. For lunch and dinner, locals usually feast on a mezze of Mediterranean vegetables with light and delicious lamb kebabs and a warm glass of çay, a popular tea.
