This brand new trip will explore some of the best of Turkish culture – from an ancient city to traditional towns and villages, far from the beaten track.
Departure at 8:00am, straight to our breakfast stop in Akyaka. Here we will enjoy a delicious Turkish breakfast, sitting beside the beautiful aquamarine river, at one of the most luxurious restaurants.
We then drive 45 minutes to one of the biggest ancient cities in Turkey which is called Stratonikeia. Stratonikeia has been known as the city of eternal love and gladiators throughout the ages. It was a centre where gladiators were trained, performed demonstrations and spent their lives after retirement.
After this we drive 20 minutes to Bozüyük village which has a stunning atmosphere. We will have complimentary drinks at the famous coffee shop at the village square. The village is one of the most popular villages in Turkey and due to its stunning atmosphere, it has been the location for many films. We will wander around the village, where there are many things to see such as the organic local market and local culture house museum.
Around 1.30pm, we will begin the short 15-minute walk to one of the most beautiful restaurants around Muğla, where we have a beautiful lunch; you will be able to choose whatever you want from the menu. Here there is a very big garden and a tree, which is over 850 years old. After we have had our lunch, we will head to our next stop Aplangıç.
It is 15 minutes walk to Aplangıç, another village which has gorgeous atmosphere. Here you can sit in the icy cold water whilst enjoying your complimentary drinks and good company, chatting to each other about the beautiful day.
Aplangıç is a local word around Muğla. The meaning of the name dates back many years, prior to construction of the bridge, when local people put big rocks in the shallow part of the river and would jump from one rock to another to cross over.
After we spend about an hour here, we will drive back home, which will take about 1.5 hours.
We promise that this trip will take your breath away and you will see some unique places where few people have the opportunity to visit.
