Punctuated with lots of travel tips, we'll visit many of the ancient sites of the Minoan, Mycenaean, and classical Greek civilizations. Our journey begins in the bustling capital city of Athens, then we'll explore the Peloponnese and go island-hopping among the Greek islands of Mykonos, Delos, Rhodes, Crete, and Santorini.
We'll learn about Turkey's historic, cultural, and religious center as we explore Istanbul's most famous sites including Hagia Sofia, Chora Church, the Grand Bazaar and Spice Market, Topkapı Palace, and the magnificent Blue Mosque.
Our journey starts in exotic Istanbul before crossing the Bosphorus to explore Turkey's capital city of Ankara, the otherworldly rock formations of Cappadocia, and seaside villages and towns — including Bodrum, the Apostle Paul's Ephesus, Gallipoli, and Troy. Along the way we'll meet Turkey's greatest treasure: its people.
