General information

Turkey is a country of a million faces.
Geographically located between Europe and Asia, it has a modern and international cultural background while conserving an open door to the magic of the Orient.

When cruising to the "Turkish Riviera" along Bodrum, Marmaris, Fethiye, Göcek and Antalya, you will not only encounter crystal clear waters, beautiful bays, astonishing beaches, interesting historical monuments, hamams, singing mu'addhins and a roaring nightlife but also one of the most welcoming populations that you ever met. The rich Turkish food based on fresh fish, vegetables, meat and some oriental flavors, the delicious sweets of the area that is generously served with tea in restaurants, on markets or on the typical gulets is only one of the many reasons for this discovering this area of the Mediterranean Sea.

Also historically speaking the the Turkish Coast is deeply involved in the Ancient Greek mythology and hosts two of the seven Wonders of the Ancient World: the Mausoleum at Halicarnassus and the Temple of Artemis in Ephesos. Odysseus' Troy, Pergamon, Ephesos, Didyma and Milet are only some of the important archaeological sites that you will be able to visit.

And last, but not least, the Turkish Coast is located just in front of the Greek Dodecanese with its wonderful islands of Rhodes, Kos, Simi, Lipsi, Patmos, Kalimnos and many more that are easily reachable by boat through the payment of immigration fees.
