FAQs Turkey Culture & Historical Tours

What is the most historic place in Turkey?

It is hard to pinpoint a single city or place as the most historic in Turkey; however, it is possible to list some of the oldest and most popular ones. Göbekli Tepe in Urfa is probably the oldest known site in Turkey. It is the world's first temple and is around 12,000 years old.
Istanbul is also one of the oldest cities globally, having been the capital for uninterrupted one thousand six hundred years. Consequently, numerous artifacts from Byzantines, Romans, to Ottomans can be visited.

Izmir, Kusadasi, and Denizli (Pamukkale) were popular settlements throughout history, covering ancient ages, Roman periods, and even hundreds of years ago.
Antalya, founded by King Attalos II of Pergamon and located in the ancient Pamphylia region, is home to many ancient civilizations.
It is challenging to single out one city as the most historic place in Turkey, but roughly, the Aegean, Mediterranean, and the eastern regions of the country boast numerous historical and cultural treasures for travelers.

How many days are enough for Turkey tour?

The 10-day Turkey Tour Packages usually include Istanbul, Gallipoli, Kusadasi, and Cappadocia, the most popular visiting places in Turkey. However, a longer tour package can include Antalya and Mugla cities among these destinations. Yet, the east and the north sides of Turkey have stunning gems to visit, and a second Turkey trip can be planned.

Which month is best to visit Turkey?

Central and eastern Anatolia are cold and snowy during the winter, while the west and south coasts are chilly and rainy. Hence, spring, summer, and autumn months are the best times to visit Turkey. However, Turkey is home to world-class ski centers like Uludag and Sarıkamis for winter enthusiasts.

What is the best way to travel around Turkey?

Booking a tour will free you from transportation, language, and accommodation requirements. Thus, joining a private or regular tour can be the best way to travel around Turkey. Plus, Turkey tour packages include guidance that you will most probably need, given that the destinations in Turkey have deep historical significance. Please check guaranteed departure tours that offer the best options to travel around Turkey.
