Day 1: Istanbul – Ephesus (L, D)
On arrival at Ataturk Airport, board your plane and fly to Izmir at 7.30am. From here, the journey to the ancient city of Ephesus is only 1.5 hours, and you’ll follow a picturesque route along Aegean coastal roads.

Stop for lunch in a traditional Turkish restaurant and then arrive in Ephesus to discover what life was like for the Turks in Greco-Roman times. On a guided tour around the beautifully preserved Classical ruins, see one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World – the Temple of Artemis -- as well as the House of the Virgin Mary, where Mary is said to have spent her final days.

After breakfast, check out of your hotel and visit a famous leather factory in Kusadasi called Emelda Leather. Turkey is one of the world’s leading producers and exporters of leather goods, and Emelda showcases some of Kusadasi’s finest leatherwork. Browse the locally handcrafted goods with your guide, and shop for quality souvenirs.

Enjoy lunch in town and then head to the archeological site of Pamukkale by minibus to see its captivating white travertine rock terraces that cascade down from the ancient city of Hierapolis. While walking around this UNESCO World Heritage Site with your guide, learn about the rock’s geology, and then visit the ancient city of Hierapolis for a dip in its naturally formed bathing pools (own expense).

The cliff-top village of Uçhisar is nearby, so head here next for a visit to Uçhisar Castle. Enjoy panoramic views from the Byzantine castle’s windows before walking through spectacular Red Valley to the village of Çavuşin for lunch.

In the afternoon, hop on board your minibus for a drive to see the Pasabag Fairy Chimneys in Monks Valley – widely considered as the best examples of Cappadocia’s mushroom-shaped rocks. See double- and even triple-headed chimney formations, and then continue your tour through Devrent Valley.
