Come explore the Cradle of Civilisation!
Where East meets West, Turkey has been at the frontier of disparate and competing civilisations for centuries - and today it boasts some of the most fascinating history and culture in the world. Combine this with supremely hospitable people, breathtaking scenery and world-class cuisine, and it's easy to understand Turkey's appeal.
Istanbul, previously known as Byzantium and Constantinople, offers a huge variety of sites showcasing its diverse history. Its character is complex and its streets bustle with a variety of influences, old and new. Discover the world's oldest temple, Göbekli Tepe, the world's oldest city, Çatalhöyük and the fairy-tale landscapes and underground cities of Cappadocia. Walk the fertile land where agriculture was first practised. Climb the holy Armenian mountain of Ararat and some volcanic peaks in the East or seek out the fabled city of Troy in the West.
