8-Night Turkey Intensive Voyage on Azamara Pursuit
Explore exotic, enigmatic Turkey on this country-intensive voyage crafted to show you hidden gems through a local lens. Starting in Athens, we sail to Bodrum, Turkey. This Aegean jewel dazzles with tumbling bougainvillea, whitewashed homes, and a chic resort vibe. Next, is traditional-yet-contemporary Marmaris, where beautiful beaches and ancient ruins abound.
In the ancient Turkish port of Ephesus on a late stay, discover the beautiful Library of Celsus, the Odeon, and the Amphitheater where St. Paul preached, as well as the House of the Virgin Mary.
Arrive in Kepez, the gateway to Canakkale, Troy, and Gallipoli for another late night. Then, it’s on to an overnight in the captivating city of Istanbul.
In Istanbul, explore famed sites like the Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace, and Basilica Cistern. Shop at the Grand Bazaar, one of the world’s oldest and largest covered markets. Go on a boat tour of the Bosphorus and the Golden Horn and indulge in delectable Turkish cuisine before taking a day at sea to unwind, then concluding your voyage back in Athens.
