Come, discover Turkey, famed not only for its hospitable people and delicious food but for its wealth of natural and historical treasures. From the Fairy Chimneys of Cappadocia and the Kursunlu Falls near Antalya; the Portico of Tiberius and the Baths of Hadrian at Aphrodisias or Nemrut Dagh's haunting heads, testimony to a king's power and vanity; to ancient Aspendos, where there is the best preserved Roman Theater in the world, Turkey enchants at every turn.

It is a land of kings, sultans, philosophers, holy men and artists who created a history that is the wonder of the world and the origin of modern Turkey's fascinating cultural diversity.
