Join us for an exciting adventure exploring Turkey's beautiful Levantine Coast onboard the luxury gulet "Love Boat".
Start with a 3 night stay Istanbul. It matters little how many times you have visited Istanbul, for sure it will never have been enough. After your stay in Istanbul, transfer to Canakkale then cruise for ten nights on a traditional Turkish gulet. Visit key sites from both ancient and modern history including Troy, Gallipoli, Bozcaada, Ayvalik, Pergamum, Foca, Izmir, Ephesus, Didyma and Bodrum. Deepen your understanding of this part of the world during the last days of the Ottoman Empire and the beginnings of modern Turkey.
Noted historian and writer Giles Milton - author of the book ‘Paradise Lost’, set in the last days of the Ottoman Empire, will be your guest speaker during this journey. Giles will combine his specialist knowledge of Winston Churchill, Turkey and the fall of Smyrna with his personal skill of bringing history to life.
