In 1915, the Allies attacked Gallipoli to capture Constantinople, now Istanbul, in a bid to help struggling Russian forces. The failed mission is believed to have cost 100,000 lives and is commemorated by memorials at the major battle sites. Visit the Lone Pine Australian Memorial and Chunuk Bair New Zealand Cemetery and Memorial, and see Anzac Cove, the Nek and Johnston’s Jolly. In the evening, enjoy dinner at your hotel in nearby Çanakkale.
After lunch (own expense), continue to Bergama Acropolis (Pergamum Acropolis), an ensemble of theaters, temples and palaces that once made up a thriving, ancient Greek capital. Afterward, arrive at your hotel in Kusadasi, your base for the next two nights, and unwind over dinner.
Enjoy a break for lunch (own expense) and join your guide for a visit to the former Greek village of Şirince, a charming 19th-century settlement of traditional houses that's famed for its wines. After a visit to a carpet-weaving workshop, return to your Kusadasi hotel.
Following lunch (own expense), drive to Pamukkale to admire its cotton-candy-like, calcified rock terraces, dotted with milky turquoise pools. Wander over to the neighboring archaeological gem of Hierapolis, a UNESCO-listed cluster of ruins dating from the 2nd-century BC. Seize the chance to swim in the city's hot springs once used by toga-clad Romans. Waft through the reputedly therapeutic waters, taking care not to bump into the submerged Roman pillars that still stand in the pools.
On arrival in Cappadocia, check in to your hotel and enjoy dinner. Alternatively, choose to attend an optional folklore evening (own expense) featuring live belly dancing, folk music and unlimited drinks.
After lunch (own expense) in Göreme, drive through a valley crowded with Cappadocia's famous fairy chimneys and other weird and wonderful rock pinnacles, cliffs and peaks. Then, explore Kaymaklı Underground City: descending into a maze of once-inhabited subterranean passages, chambers and cellars. Return to your Cappadocia hotel in the evening and enjoy dinner.
Later, drive back to Istanbul where your tour concludes with a drop-off back at your Sultanahmet hotel or the original departure point in Sultanahmet.
