View of Istanbul

The cradle of civilization. Center of world history. Turkey is both, yet still a young republic having been founded upon the remains of the Ottoman Empire. It's the site of the first human settlement, the seat of the Greek, Roman and Ottoman Empires; the birthplace of Homer and the last home of the Virgin Mary; the originator of yogurt and the presenter of coffee to the West. And have we mentioned the scenery?

Turkey is a large country, being twice the size of California. It offers a spectacular coastline, majestic mountains, cosmopolitan cities and quaint villages - no wonder it's one of the world's most desirable destinations.

So head to Turkey, where East meets West in a flourish of color, culture and adventure!

Historical Note: The history of Anatolia, the Turkish homeland, is simply incredible. The world's oldest city was discovered there at Catal Hoyuk in 7500 BC. The Hittite Empire, little known in the west, rivaled that of ancient Egypt, and left behind captivating works of art.
