Itinerary idea in detail

Includes international flights from a choice of UK airports, including London, Birmingham, Manchester, Newcastle, Edinburgh and Glasgow.

  • Today you begin your journey by boarding your international outbound flight to Istanbul. Upon arrival into Istanbul, you'll be met at the airport and driven to your centrally located hotel.

  • Embark on a full day tour of the city with your guide today, visiting highlights such as the Hippodrome, the Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace and the Grand Bazaar.

  • Another day with your guide. Today you'll visit Dolmabahçe Palace, the Chora Museum and the Spice Market, before embarking on a cruise along the Bosphorus.

  • Today you leave Istanbul and travel out toward the Gallipoli Peninsula. Here you'll visit some of the battlefields and memorials with your guide, before continuing over the Dardanelles to Çanakkale, where you stay tonight.

  • You'll travel on to Pergamon today, visiting its ancient Acropolis and Asclepion. Continue on to the pretty seaside town of Alaçati.

  • Today you embark on a day trip to the spectacular ancient ruined city of Ephesus, before returning to Alaçati in the evening.

  • The day is at your leisure to explore at your own pace. Wandering the streets of Alaçati is a pleasant way to spend your time, enjoying the cafés, boutique shops and chaotic antique stores dotted about town.

  • Another day at your leisure. The Çeşme Peninsula has several beaches which, although not ideal for sunbathing due to strong winds, have some lovely walks as well as great views across the water.

  • Drive to Izmir today, to catch a flight back to Istanbul. Here, you'll board your return flight home. Your return flight will arrive the same day.
