This historical land has had its fair share of empires – the Romans, Byzantines, and Ottomans. From famous monuments in Istanbul to the ancient city of Ephesus, Turkey is a treasure trove for anyone who loves history and architecture. Add the other-worldly destination of Cappadocia and Mediterranean beaches, you have a country waiting to be explored!
We spent 10 days in Turkey with our daughter. I had been to Turkey earlier, but just to Istanbul. There are too many places in this richly historical land to fit in 10 days. For our Turkey itinerary – we explored the historic sights in Istanbul at a leisurely pace, experienced the unusual landscape in Cappadocia and got transported back to the Roman era in Ephesus.
Then, there is the beautiful coastline dotted with lovely towns.
