Hierapolis is the second-most visited place in the district. It was founded as a thermal spa in the 2nd century BC in a region rich in natural resources. The city was later rebuilt during the Roman era, and many of the structures that visitors can see today were constructed during this period. The Necropolis, which is home to more than 1200 tombs, the Roman Theater, the Temple of Apollo, which dates back to the 3rd century BC, and the Byzantine Church, which features early Christian architecture, can be seen in the ruins.

Our departure for Pergamon is scheduled for early in the morning. We will have the opportunity to visit the Asklepion, Zeus Alter, Red Basilica, and more in Pergamon. 


Pergamon was once the site of a Hellenistic and later Roman city, ruled by a powerful local dynasty for several centuries. Although excavations were completed in 1886, much of the discovered artifacts were later transported to Germany. Nevertheless, the acropolis of Eumenes II remains a major attraction, along with a host of other interesting sights and an old quarter with a chaotic charm that can easily occupy a day or two. One of its main attractions is the Kizil Avlu, or "Red Basilica", a massive structure located by the river near the acropolis. Originally constructed as a temple to the Egyptian god Osiris, it was later converted to a basilica by early Christians and was one of the Seven Churches of Asia Minor mentioned in the book of Revelations. We will spend the night in Bergama.

(Breakfast and Dinner included)

Following breakfast, we will head to the ancient city of Troy, near the Dardanelles Strait in the province of Canakkale. The site is believed to have been inhabited continuously for thousands of years, with evidence of human settlement dating back to 3000 BCE.


The Trojan War is the center of the mythology of Troy, which was fought between the Trojans and the Greeks. The Greeks built a giant wooden horse, which the Trojans brought inside their walls, unaware that Greek soldiers were hiding inside. The Greeks emerged from the horse and opened the gates of Troy, allowing their army to enter and conquer the city after a ten-year war. Today, visitors to the ancient city of Troy can see the remnants of the nine different cities that were built on top of each other over thousands of years. Overnight in Canakkale. 

(Breakfast included)

Early in the morning, the tour will move to Gallipoli. With breaks, the tour will arrive there at about noon. Kabatepe Museum is the first place that will be visited, which has a rich weapon, photograph, and garment collection that was used by soldiers during the Gallipoli Campaign.


Ariburnu Cemetery will be next, which was built for the soldiers from Australia, New Zealand, the UK, India, and Malta that lost their lives during WWI in the Gallipoli Campaign. Anzac Cove, Beach Cemetery, Lone Pine, and Chunuck Bair are on the list where the most intense struggles have occurred. While listening to their sad stories, you may feel the cruelty of the war again. Late in the afternoon, we will arrive in Istanbul. Overnight in Istanbul.

(Breakfast included)

The TSG team will pick you up from the hotel after breakfast around 8:00 a.m. for "Bosphorus by Boat,". a traditional excursion by boat along the waterway separating Europe and Asia.

You will have the opportunity to see the 19th-century Ottoman masterpiece Dolmabahce Palace, Yildiz Palace, one of the unique samples of the last period of Ottoman architecture, and Ciragan Palace with its amazing marble facades from the boat. Additionally, the Rumeli Fortress, one of the most exquisite examples of Ottoman military architecture, the harmony of eastern and western architectural styles at the Beylerbeyi Palace, the iconic view of Ortakoy, and more can be seen during the boat tour.
