Troy, famous for it’s legend of the Trojan Horse and of course for the film starring Brad Pitt and Orlando Bloom. But you can find the real Troy (Truva) in Turkey, an UNESCO World Heritage and worth while visiting.
When I’m travelling I love to visit local markets. A dear friend of mine adviced me to go to Sigacik. Sigacik is a lovely little village near the sea. But is so much more than a farmers market. It’s a weekly craftsmarket and organic/ local food festival.
It is as if you are walking through one of the lovely villages in the South of France, like Port Grimaud or St. Tropez. But it is not, this is Turkey. Alaçatı is the loveliest Med1terranean town I’ve ever visited in Turkey.
Whether you like hiking in the mountains or lying on a beach relaxing, the national Milipark in Güzelcamli (formaly known as Dilek National Park) is a little piece of paradise. I like to go there, whenever I can, whatever season it is.
The white fairytale baths and hot springs of the World Heritage Site Pamukale are one of the most famous tourists attractions in Turkey. Even if you’ve never been there you might have seen the beautiful pictures of the many white terraces made of travertine.
Ephesus or Efes in Turkish , dates back to the 10th century BC, founded by Greek colonists. In 129 BC it came under Roman reign and became a flourishing city, the third largest of Roman Asia after Sardis and Alexandria.
