Tour Roman ruins, Turkish architecture, and the relics of civilization on this 12-day trip throughout Turkey.

The Destination
History buffs, sun-worshipers, honeymooners, foodies—no matter what kind of wanderer you are, you'll find what you seek in Turkey. Sandwiched between Southeast Europe and the Middle East, with the Mediterranean to the south and the Black Sea to the north, "this geographic and cultural bridge," Frommer's says, "boasts more Greek ruins than Greece, more Roman archaeological sites than all of Italy, and—in Antalya alone—more resort hotels than all the coast of Spain."

Indeed, it's a wonder Turkey is not at the top of more travelers' lists. But that's quickly changing. This transcontinental nation has seen huge increases in tourism in recent years, and with tourism has come improved infrastructure, newly discovered archaeological sites, and a host of restaurants, bars, and hotels. Still, the country has remained tied to its roots—Asian, Balkan, Mediterranean, and Middle Eastern among them—and this 12-day trip from Keytours Vacations will ensure you see it all.

  • Turkey is a unique country: a rich, layered, and magical world full of history, culture, gastronomy, humanity, and commerce -- increasingly Europeanized yet (notwithstanding the über-cosmopolitan center that is Istanbul) still unspoiled and innocent.

  • The agent I dealt with at Keytours was wonderful to work with. She quickly answered any concerns that I had... We were thrilled with the offer. I have been wanting to travel to the interior of Turkey and this gave me that opportunity to do that.
