Trace the footsteps of Ottoman sultans and Roman emperors as you explore one of the most history-rich countries in the world.

As a transcontinental country, Turkey offers culture, politics, and cuisine that draws inspiration from both Europe and Asia. Enjoy the first taste of thick, dark Turkish coffee, which UNESCO has declared a cultural heritage of Turkey, and be prepared to accept steaming glasses of tea when offered. Wander the alleyways of the Grand Bazaar and shop from more than 4,000 vendors, or spend an afternoon at one of many world-famous archeological sites.
