Turkey Travel Ideas - Istanbul, Ankara, Antalya, Bodrum and The Gallipoli Peninsula
Turkey is a land with a rich history, one that has provided numerous ruins to explore. This country is located in southwest Asia. It is bordered by three seas, the Mediterranean Sea, the Black Sea, and the Aegean Sea, and by eight countries, Iraq, Iran, Syria, Greece, Bulgaria, Georgia, Armenia and Azerbaijan.
Turkey's capital, Ankara, features a Byzantine citadel, Hisar, which sits high atop a hill. Additionally, the Museum of Anatolian Civilizations is nearby with its many interesting finds. Also, an example of Anatolian architecture, the mausoleum of Ataturk is close enough to take a trip to see.
Antalya, located on the Mediterranean coast of Turkey, features pebble beaches and an easy location from which to sightsee or explore other beaches. Istanbul has a long history that dates back to the days of Constantinople. It is a city of romance that still has the ability to lure visitors in with its mosques, atmosphere and bargains.
The Gallipoli Peninsula, once noisy with the sound of battle, has now reached a quiet existence among its pine trees, farmlands and fields. Tours are available to navigate you through this once expansive battlefield.
Bodrum may be one of the prettiest places to visit while in Turkey. It has a port that features ferry rides to the Greek island of Kos. The streets of Bodrum are lined with palm trees and water activities are available. The night scene is noisy with the sounds of music, dancing and laughter.
