Turkey is a crossroads of prestigious civilizations. It offers countless historical treasures, starting with the prehistoric remains, then the many Hellenistic and Roman sites, without forgetting the Seljuq builders who left, everywhere in Turkey, caravanserais, bridges and mosques, or the Ottomans and their wonders, fountains, mosques, hammams... A few days in Turkey allow to cross more than 10 000 years of history. An inexhaustible cultural and artistic heritage.History is superimposed on its layers and enriched to create a contemporary, modern and, what is more, exciting Turkey!
Exceptional hospitality :
Hospitality is one of the foundations of the Turkish way of life. In Turkey, the traveller is never a tourist, he is a misafir, a "guest", a "host". The only embarrassment the foreign traveller may feel is that he or she cannot refuse what is so kindly offered. Accepting coffee, tea or fruit will be the best of thanks. Even in villages, there will always be someone who has a basic knowledge of a foreign language and who, with great eagerness, will improvise to interpret in order to help the traveller who wants to be understood.
