Ideal tour with family or friends. A mix of trekking and sea sports for all levels, magnificent mountains in a sublime union with the sea, this is undoubtedly the first image you will remember of this trip to the lands conquered by Alexander The Great. The Akdag and Beydaglari massifs are part of the majestic Taurus range, with their slopes sometimes arid, sometimes green, and their high snow-capped peaks for a good part of the year.
On this coast which has seen so many civilizations pass by, apart from the astonishing sight of a clear sea at the foot of the steep cliffs, you will discover the archaeological riches that date back up to 3 thousand years from the well-preserved Greco-Roman cities and high school necropolises lost in the vegetation or submerged at the bottom of a turquoise sea.
Straddling the West and the East, Istanbul is the meeting point of two continents and several cultures. Founded more than 2600 years ago, it was first Byzantium, then Constantinople, before becoming the sumptuous capital of the Ottomans, for nearly 5 centuries. Today it is a great cosmopolitan city where the past and the present mingle in a striking synthesis. Through its most beautiful monuments, we will help you discover its attraction and its fascination.
