Sultan Ahmed (Blue) Mosque……

 

Kusadasi – a great town from which to visit the ancient city of Ephesus.  Ephesus has ruins of grand monuments of the Roman Imperial period including the Library of Celsus and the Great Theatre.  Little remains of the famous Temple of Artemis, one of the “Seven Wonders of the World,” which drew pilgrims from all around the Mediterranean.

Istanbul – out first Airbnb stay.  A major city in Turkey that straddles Europe and Asia across the Bosphorus Strait. Its Old City reflects cultural influences of the many empires that once ruled. In the Sultanahmet district, the open-air, Roman-era Hippodrome was for centuries the site of chariot races, and Egyptian obelisks also remain. The Byzantine Hagia Sophia features a soaring 6th-century dome and rare Christian mosaics.
