It is known for one of the best-preserved Roman ruins in the world — but this isn’t Italy. It is steeped in Greek mythology — a place where Homer’s epics come to life – but this isn’t Greece. It is where a succession of historic empires have left their mark — and Pagan, Christian, Muslim, and Jewish cultures have collided — and co-existed. A sprawling coastline with incredible beauty — with stunning landscapes, endless beaches, and clear, turquoise waters that have been traversed for millennia — yet are still waiting to be discovered. It is a destination that is equally alluring and surprising – where you can explore the past, live the present, and ponder the future. This is Turkey’s Hidden Aegean.
