Turkey is the ultimate crossroads between East and West. Outside Istanbul’s city center you can stand literally with one foot in Europe and the other in Asia. From whirling dervishes to its 21st century economy, Turkey is also a bridge from the ancient past through the Ottoman Empire to current times. Istanbul’s awesome sights from the Hagia Sophia to the sparkling Topkapi jewels will provide you with life-long memories. For shoppers, the old market/suq will captivate you and provide ample opportunities to travel home carting hand-made rugs and smaller gift items while your countless photos from sunrise on the blue Mosque to sunset on the Bosporus will provide you with a real nostalgia for this stellar trip that will lead you from enchanting Istanbul to Gaziantep, Cappadocia, and Urfa.
