Take a walking tour of Turkey’s capital, Istanbul, through bazaars brimming with spices and silks, towards Istanbul’s grandest cultural sights. From the Topkapi Palace to the Sultan Ahmet Mosque (which visitors nicknamed, the Blue Mosque, because of its beautiful blue Iznik tiles). From there, travel outside the capital to Turkey’s ancient cities of Canakkale, Kusadasi, Pamukkale and Bursa. Stop at the Troy Archaeological site and the Aphrodisias site, which has been sacred since as early as 5,800 B.C. when farmers would come by to worship the goddess Aphrodite.
