Holidays in Turkey provide a complete kaleidoscope of exciting opportunities for couples looking for last minute breaks in the sun, families planning children-friendly holidays to Turkey and anyone wanting a different take on a sun-and-sea based Mediterranean getaway. Turkey straddles two continents; it's where the East and the West meet to shake hands so, as you might expect, holidays in Turkey offer a coming together of many different ingredients.
The food, for example, is a fusion of influences; the traditional Meze, as many as fifteen small dishes adding up to an epic – and epicurean – feast, may originally have come from Greece, but the Turkish twist, and the bold use of spices suggest influences of the East.
Similarly, the Greek, Persian, Roman and Byzantine empires have all contributed to the wealth of beautiful architecture – the mosques, the temples, the amphitheatres, the tiny traditional villages – that make holidays to Turkey mini-voyages of exploration and travels in time. Especially if you head for cultural centres like Ephesus – one of the Med's best-preserved Roman city, or the Crusader city of Bodrum.
But, of course, all is not ancient. The coastline of sun-washed sandy beaches, rugged cliffs and vivacious resorts beckons. Holidays in Turkey always include some dedicated sun-lounging. And revelry. Antalya is home to the Med's largest floating nightclub. Gumbet offers a cornucopia of bars, restaurants and clubs, rivalled by the relentless action in Marmara.
