Day Trips in Turkey

Edit This


When traveling in Turkey, day trips are the best way to experience the scenic landscapes, historic splendors and man-made wonders. When planning a trip, it is always a time and money saver to have a basic itinerary. Squeezing in a few day trips for you and your family to escape the city and enjoy the countryside is a must when planning your vacation. Depending on the preferences of you and your family and traveling companions, there are day trips throughout Turkey that will please every taste.

Anzac Tours

Formerly the ancient city of Constantinople, Istanbul is know by locals as the "City of Sultans." With over 3000 years of history, architecture, stories and ruins, a trip to Turkey without visiting the historic sites of Istanbul would be a loss. There are countless day tours you can take in and around the city that will take you to all the historic buildings and ruins. One popular tour around Istanbul is the Anzac Tour. Focusing on the setting of Homer's Illiad, you will visit the historic battlefield of Hector and Achilles as well as the WWII battlefield that was home to the first bloody battle with the Ottoman troops. Full of history, this tour is educational as well as entertaining.

Anatolia Ruins

If archeology is where your interests lie, embarking on a visit to ancient Anatolia will be exactly what you're looking for. Anatolia is full of ancient Roman ruins, intricate stone sculptures and ancient settlement patterns. Roman aqueducts and bridges dot the countryside as well as countless less renowned ruins such as homes, monasteries, churches, walls and fortresses, palaces, fountains, mosques and cemeteries. Whether enjoying the ruins on your own time or with a tour guide, a trip to this rich landscape makes for a day trip that is a must.

Gullet Tour

Not only is the landscape of Turkey a treat to see, the coastlines are just as magnificent and worthwhile to view and experience. One of the traditional ways to explore the Mediterranean coastline of Turkey is by embarking on a gullet tour. Classic, Turkish sailing vessels, a cabin can be rented for you and your family or traveling companions to relax throughout the day when not enjoying the scenic beauty from the decks. Tours embark out of almost every major port on the Turkish coast, so needing to find a tour will be a breeze. A guided gullet tour is your best bet as the tour guide will point out major locations and scenery, ruins and architecture.
