Day 2 : Istanbul
Feeling rested from our relaxing evening, we explore the Old City on foot starting with the Blue Mosque, the Hippodrome, Hagia Sophia (closed on Mondays) and Topkapi Palace (closed on Tuesdays).

Our guide has given us a day at leisure toda, so after a well-earned sleep in we discuss our options for the day ahead. (Breakfast).

Day 5 : Canakkale / Troy / Pergamum / Izmir
Our day starts with a visit to the ancient site of Troy, before continuing onto Pergamum and finally Izmir. The ancient site of Troy and its replica Trojan wooden horse really brought to life Homer’s Iliad and the story of Helen and Achilles. (Breakfast, Lunch).
Day 6 : Izmir / Ephesus / Izmir
We have a full day today to explore the ancient Roman city of Ephesus before returning to our hotel in Izmir. The history of this amazing place is awe-inspiring with great marble monuments that have survived since early AD. (Breakfast & Lunch).
