Turkey

This land of emperors and sultans combines natural beauty and a diverse modern culture with the omnipresent reminders of its rich past. Istanbul, Europe’s largest city, offers all the sophistication of an international metropolis—fabulous shopping, exclusive restaurants and night clubs, a thriving arts and music scene—alongside the Grand Bazaar’s artisanal wares or the serenity of a traditional Turkish bath. The great personalities of the past remain vividly present in the city’s landmarks: the cathedral-sized Basilica Cistern and the great dome of Haga Sophia reflect Justinian’s efforts to reinforce imperial power; vast Topkapi Palace was the ancestral home of sultans like the legendary Suleiman the Magnificent, builder of Suleymanique Mosque; columns and aqueducts recall earlier Roman colonisers. If you’d like to escape the cosmopolitan luxury of the city, Turkey offers wild mountain landscapes in Anatolia, coast overlooking the blue Aegean, and the strange, magical world of Cappadocia with its villages and churches carved into the tawny local rock, underground cities in which early Christians hid from persecution, and landscapes of towering fairy chimneys. For lovers of history, art, culture and exotic sensations, this bridge between Europe and Asia cannot be missed.
