No Turkey Cruise would be complete without a visit to Istanbul, the gateway to the Black Sea and the once jewel of the Ottoman Empire that. This is the confluence where Asia and Europe meet and today one of the busiest shipping routes in the world. Istanbul is blessed with towering mosques, the most famous being the Blue Mosque. The covered markets hiding the endless carpet, spice and trinket sellers. Cruise to Bodrum or plan a trip to Ephesus, the most amazing reflection of ancient history from classical Greece to the Roman Empire – where it was once the main commercial centre in the Mediterranean – to the spread of Christianity. Southwest of Selçuk stands the House of the Virgin Mary, a pilgrimage site believed to be where Mary spent the last years of her life.
