1)    Take a trip to an ancient theatre

A holiday to Turkey should definitely involve a trip to the city of Aspendos, which is home to the country’s best-preserved Roman theatre. The Greco-Roman Aspendos theatre, which was built in 155 AD, is still used for some performances today. The city offers breath-taking views of its many ancient ruins too.

2)    Get on a boat in Antayla

The old yacht-filled harbour in the Turkish city of Antayla is a great place to visit on your holiday. You can spend hours of your day eating and drinking in one of the city’s cafes, bars and restaurants, looking over the charming harbour, located in the heart of Antayla. For a relaxed experience, why not take a boat tour from the old harbour into the Gulf of Antalya and along the coast?

3)    Explore Epehsus

The ancient city of Ephesus, in Turkey’s central Aegean region, is an explorer’s paradise. The fantastic preserved city is a brilliant place to discover on your Turkey getaway, offering its magnificent 3rd century Grand Theatre, ancient Roman Library of Celsus and Curetes Street, lined with fascinating ruins, and so much more!

4)    Stroll down the Lycian Way

The 300 mile-long footpath Lycian Way stretches from Ölüdeniz to Geyikbayırı, along the southern coast of Turkey. While many take on this long-distance route as a challenging hike, you can enjoy the footpath over the course of a few days of walking for a more relaxing experience! The route goes through rocky coastlines, secluded beaches, forests and ancient ruins – it’s a fantastic way to see some of the best of Turkey!

5)    Relax on the golden sands of Iztuzu Beach

The 4.5 kilometre-long Iztuzu Beach, near Dalyan town in southwest Turkey, is a fantastic place to lay back and relax on your holiday here. Boasting beautiful, blue waters and soft, golden sands, the large beach is also one of the Mediterranean nesting sites of the loggerhead turtle.

6)    Visit a breathtaking palace

Topkapı Palace, located in Istanbul, is a stunning place to visit on your Turkish adventures. The 15th century large palace, which is now also a museum for its many visitors, offers a glimpse into the lives of the sultans and courtiers who lived there centuries ago.
