Regions of Turkey

Poised between Europe and Asia, the vast and endlessly fascinating country of Turkey ranges from the cosmopolitan buzz of Istanbul to the mysterious ruins of ancient Troy. So, whether you want to explore remote mountain-ringed lakes, idyllic sandy beaches, dervish festivals or the spectacular relics of the Hittite, Byzantine and Ottoman empires, use our map of Turkey below to plan your trip.

For a different perspective, think about viewing the stunning Turkish landscape from the air on a balloon ride above Cappadocia’s awe-inspiring “fairy chimneys”; hike along the ravishing Turquoise Coast; or explore the ancient mountaintop sanctuary of Nemrut Dagi. Then there are numerous reminders of Turkey’s past, from the Roman Acropolis of Ancient Pergamon to the Hittite capital of Hattusa and the Byzantine monastery of Sumela. After all that exploring, don't forget to relax: pamper yourself at a traditional Hamam, or enjoy baklava with a strong black coffee.
