Turkey charms everyone who visits with its eclectic mix of rich cultures and style. The point where East and West meet, and the gateway from Europe into Asia connect in Istanbul. Countless empires have left their distinctive marks, which have now been woven seamlessly into the modern day and can be seen everywhere from the cuisine, to architecture and religion. Head to Bodrum, for the Mausoleum, one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, Ephesus for its unrivalled history, or Istanbul to stock up on authentic Turkish delights and local olive oil. In Istanbul you can visit the St Sophie Museum, which started life as a church, later became a mosque and today is a museum to Turkey’s rich Byzantine heritage.
