Hop from one island to the next and explore the exclusive seas beyond Göcek, which can only be accessed by boat. Visit the infamous Blue Lagoon, Kabak, Butterfly Valley, Olympos, and Cleopatra beach, or find a private cove of your own, and be taken on a splendid Mediterranean journey you won’t soon forget.

Reasons to visit

Turkey is home to some of the oldest remaining archaeological sites in the world. Just south of Bodrum, you can find ruins of an ancient city built by the Greeks, named Knidos, and a little further north Didyma. In each, you can wander through the ruins and spot breathtaking statues of Aphrodite and a stone head of Medusa. Don’t forget to visit the picturesque UNESCO World Heritage site Pamukkale,

famed to be one of the most photogenic spots in the country. Take a dip in the scenic mineral-rich pools, which cascade down the mountainside like giant steps, and be rejuvenated. Take some time to explore the colorful city, haggle in the street markets redolent with rich spices, sample delicious local cuisine and walk cobblestone pathways that wind through Ottoman-Greek whitewashed houses.

Local Culture and Cuisine

Influences from the Persian, Ottoman, Roman, and Byzantine empires have left their mark on Turkey’s culture and cuisine. Walk in the steps of Julius Caesar and Alexander the Great and admire the architectural splendor in alluring Istanbul. The Hagia Sophia’s soaring dome still leaves visitors awestruck after a millennium. Turkish cuisine is a fusion of Mediterranean, Middle Eastern, Central Asian, Balkan, and Eastern European cuisines.  Some Turkish dishes include yogurt salad, seafood and meat, stuffed and wrapped vegetables, and drinks like sherbet, ayran, and raki. It’s customary for the Turks to enjoy raki with an assortment of small dishes, which are served as an appetizer and are called mezes. Try some on the waterfront, or have your 5-star onboard chef prepare a selection of traditional dishes for you to enjoy.

Best places for wining and dining

A few steps away from the Karakoy ferryboat hub in Istanbul sits the stylish Neolokal fine dining restaurant. With a garden of its own and ample creativity, the restaurant offers traditional dishes with a twist, like lamb and chard sarma with apple uveyik wheat, lamb jus and rose pickled apples, and delicious geranium rice pudding with fruit leather, dried nuts, and fruits. Ask your crew to book a table, or if you don’t feel like going out, fish from the comfort of your own deck and allow the onboard chef to prepare a 5-star meal with the catch of the day.
