Turkey

06 Nights / 07 Days Package cost : On request

Constantinople. The Ottaman Empire. The Orient Express. When someone mentions Turkey, it brings alive the places we have read about in High School history class or read in the pages of an Agatha Christie novel. Byzantine-era architecture and culture, mixed with modern day infrastructure and development. It happens only in Turkey.

Turkey remains a historically and culturally significant city. Mount Ararat, Turkey’s highest point is considered to be the resting place of the legendary Noah’s ark, while the invasion of Constantinople (now known as Istanbul) in the eleventh century led to the start of the First Crusade. A look at the various ruins around Turkey speak of the various civilizations which have occupied Turkey over the course of history. The ruins of Ephesus and Aizonai bear witness to the Greek influences while the legendary city of Troy bears Greek and Hittite influences. The Byzantines established great monuments like the Hagia Sophia, known as the world’s largest cathedral for over a 1000 years, while Muslim influences of the Ottamans and the Seljuqs can be seen in easern and central Anatolia. With a variety of foreign influences, Turkey boasts of a wide and varied culture and features on most world travellers ‘must-see’ destinations list.

Born Voyager gives you a chance to explore the mystique of Turkey with a 6 nights/7 days package.
