Itinerary Description:

Begin your first day in Istanbul uncovering Byzantine architecture where the old and new styles meet. You will visit the Hagia Sophia and take in a panorama of the city from the Galata Tower before traveling to Cappadocia. This magical mountainous region is home to the famed "fairy chimneys" created over millenia of volcanic activity. After a tour of a secretive underground city, retire to Argos in Cappadocia, a stunning abode housed inside a restored monastery.

Next, uncover the wonders of Ephesus, where the roots of Christianity first took hold and the Virgin Mary lived out her life. Overnight by the Aegean Sea in Kusadasi and investigate the ruins of Priene and the Temple of Apollo at Didyma en route to Bodrum's coastal port. Here, the past is brought to life at the Museum of Underwater Archaeology. Home to many salvaged shipwrecks, the museum is a testament to how the maritime activities in the region shaped the world we know today. The Marmara Bodrum's stunning seaside location allows you to fully appreciate the waters once traversed by ancient farers.

Return to Istanbul for the conclusion of your excursion at the Park Hyatt Macka Palas. Luxuriate on a sunset cruise on the Bosphorus, tour the stunning Suleymaniye Mosque and discover treasures at the massive Grand Bazaar on your final days in the city.
