Spires and Spice: The Wonders of Turkey

Share:

Introduction

The turning point of the Silk Road, where East meets West, Turkey is an abundance of natural and cultural riches. We invite you to explore the splendors and treasures of this diverse and captivating country with The Evolved Traveler.

“Spires and Spices,” begins in Istanbul, brimming with centuries-old bazaars and markets, and home to impressive monuments of the Roman, Byzantine and Ottoman Empires, it is itself the essence of exotic. Continue to the otherworldly landscapes of whimsical Cappadocia with its own extraordinary history. Your journey continues to one of the greatest testaments to the grandeur of ancient Turkey,  Ephesus, the world’s best-preserved Roman city.  Finally, enjoy three leisurely days in the resort town of Bodrum including a full-day, private Turkish gület (sailboat) excursion to swim and snorkel in the warm, crystal-clear waters along the Mediterranean Coast.
