June 14 to 26, 2022

Experience the highlights of Turkey, from archaeological monuments to architectural masterpieces and pristine beaches, with political sociologist Ayca Alemdaroglu.

An inside look. Delight in the many facets of this fabled country, starting in Istanbul, one of the world’s most cosmopolitan cities, to view some of its greatest treasures. A timeless time capsule. Travel to the extensive, well-preserved ruins of the legendary ancient city of Ephesus to walk famous Marble Street, study the frescoed walls and stand before the iconic Library of Celsus. Out of this world. Stay three nights in the Cappadocia region, known for its moonlike landscape, volcanic cones, twisted spires and rock-hewn churches. Turkish delight. Extend your stay for a cruise along the Turquoise Coast in gülets (small sailing ships), swimming in warm waters and exploring inlets and small towns.
