YOUR ITINERARY

Day 1: Travel to Antalya and transfer to the hotel

Day 2: Konya & Monastery of the Whirling Dervishes

Our tour crosses the majestic Taurus Mountains via

the 1825m Alacabel Pass to Konya. The town formerly

known as Ikonium became one of the greatest Christian

communities of its time under the Apostle Paul

and Saint Barnabas. To this day, its Christian and Islamic

origins make the former Seljuq capital an attractive

destination for visitors from all over the world. We will

visit the Monastery of the Whirling Dervishes whose

dance has been declared an Intangible Heritage of

Humanity by UNESCO. We will spend the next three

nights at our star hotel in Cappadocia.

Day 3: Göreme (World Heritage) & Çavuşin

Over millennia, volcanic eruptions, wind and weather have

created a strange landscape peppered with tuff rock

formations. 2,000 years ago, the region‘s inhabitants

began digging their homes, churches and underground

cities into the soft stone. The open-air museum in Göreme

(admission included) is a UNESCO world cultural heritage

site and, with its numerous cloisters, cave churches and

wall frescoes, is the highlight of any trip to Cappadocia. To

end the day, we are invited to enjoy tasty Turkish tea in the

idyllic village of Çavuşin.

Day 4: Monks Valley (World Heritage), Sinasos &

Valley of LoveSurrounded by vineyards and apricot trees,

 we descend into Monks Valley (admission included) and into a fairytale

world. Together with Göreme, this is a UNESCO World

Heritage Site. Unique rock formations and the constantly

changing colours promise moments that will remain with

you forever. We will carry on to the hidden village of Sinasos

with its ancient Greek manor houses. In a traditional carpet

factory, we will experience the fascinating, centuries-old

craft of carpet-making. The variety, designs and riot of

colours seen in these hand-knotted carpets will amaze you.

We will end the day with a photo opportunity in the Valley

of Doves and a romantic walk through the Valley of Love.

Day 5: Underground cities, historic Silk Road &

mediaeval caravanserais More than 100 underground cities sunk

 into the mountains around Cappadocia make it surely the most mysterious

capital in the region. In one of these labyrinthine cities, we

will explore the secrets of underground living (admission

included). We then drive past impressive landscapes and

isolated villages. All along the historic Silk Road are

numerous mediaeval caravanserais. In one of these stopping

places, we will learn about the social aspects of this non-

commercial facility (admission included). We continue on to

our hotel with star comfort in Antalya.

Day 6: Antalya, hist. Old Town & Karpuzkaldiran Waterfall

Today, we set off for Antalya, the capital of the Mediterranean

region. After an extensive tour of the city, we will visit

Antalya‘s Old Town. The labyrinthine streets, surrounded by

fragrant bougainvillea, as well as the beautifully preserved

Turkish manor houses in the Old Town, offer an incomparable

impression of everyday Mediterranean life. Türkiyes great

tradition of craftsmanship then takes us to a jewellery and

leather factory. As well as learning about how things are

made by hand. We will then marvel at

the impressive Karpuzkaldiran Waterfall, which tumbles

down into the open sea.

Our 5-star cultural tour draws to a close today. We enjoy

the comforts of our hotel, chill out at the pool, or ease your

muscles with a visit to a traditional Turkish steam bath.
