The queen of the cities. Some ancient cities are the sum of their monuments. But others, suach as Istanbul, factor a lot more into the equation. In the former Byzantine and Ottoman capital, you can start the day visiting the churches and mosques left by two empires, shop in chic boutiques during the afternoon. In the space of a few minutes you can hear the evocative strains of the call to prayer issuing from the Old City’s tapering minarets, the sonorous horn of a crowded commuter ferry crossing between Europe and Asia, and the strident cries of street hawkers selling fresh seasonal produce.
The majestic jewel of Central Anatolia is the Cappadocia region, a bewitching landscape of spectaclary eroded tuff (hardened volcanic ash.) Mount Erciyes, an extinct volcano, looms over this haunting panorama. Volcanic deposits have made this a fertile area for agriculture, with grapes, apricots, cherries, sugar beets and chickpeas grown locally.
The main Hittite sites in Asia Minor are found at Bogazkale and Alacahoyuk. Often neglected, Kayseri is a treasure-trove of Seljuk history and should not be missed. The Pontic kings once ruled in Amasya, an unspoiled town in the valley of yhe Yesilirmak River. The region’s varied sights complement the country crafts, such as carpet weaving and the beautiful decorative pottery produced around Avanos.

Ephesus is one of the greatest ruined cities in the western world. A Greek city was first built heree in about 1000 BC and it soon rose to fame as a centre for the worship of Cybele, the Anatolian Mother Goddess. The city we see today was founded in the 4th century BC by Alexander the Great’s successor, Lysimachus. But it was under the Romans that Ephesus became the chief port on the Aegean. Most of the surviving structures date from this period. As the harbour silted up the city declined, but played an important role in the spread of Christianity. Two great Councils of the early Church were held here in AD 431 and 449. It is said that the Virgin Mary spent her last days nearby and that St John the Evangelist came from the island of Patmos to look after her.

Washed by the Aegean Sea to the west, the Gallipoli Peninsula is bordered to the east by the Dardanelles, a strategic waterway giving Access to the Sea of Marmara, the Bosphorus and Black Sea. In ancient times, this deep channel was called the Hellespont. Today, the peninsula is an unspoiled area of farmland and pine forest, with some lovely stretches of sandy beach. However, it was also the scene of one of the bloodiest campaigns of WWI, in which more than 500,000 Allied (Australian, British, French, Indian and New Zealand) and Turkish soldiers laid down their lives. The region has three museums, and is dotted with cemeteries and monuments. In 1973, the Gallipoli National Historic Park was created in recognition of the area’s great historical significance.
''Those heroes who shed their blood and lost their lives, you are now lying in the soil of a friendly country. Therefore rest in peace. There is no difference between the Johnnies and the Mehmets to us where they lie side by side in this country of ours.
You, the mothers who sent their sons from far away countries wipe away your tears, your sonsa re now lying in our bosoms anda re in peace. After having lost their lives on this land they become our sons as well.’’

In Hellenistic times, the thermal springs at Hierapolis made the city a popular spa. Today, the ruins of Hierapolis stil draw visitors, who come to swim in its mineral-rich pools and to see the startling white travertine terraces of nearby Pamukkale. Founded by Eumenes II, king of Pergamon, the city was noted for its textiles, particulary wool. Hierapolis was ceded to Rome in 133 BC along with the rest of the Pergamene kingdom. The city was destroyed by an earthquake in AD 60, and was rebuilt and reached its peak in AD 196-215. Hierapolis fell into decline in the 6th century, and the site became partially submerged by water and deposits of travertine.
