Turkey Photo Tour with the Womens Travel Network

Sep 09-22, 2023

14 days | Turkey | Womens Travel Network

Mixed company - men are welcome!

Turkey, the gateway to Asia, focus of the great Ottoman Empire and home to some of the most beautiful archaeological sites in the western world, is one of civilization’s highlights. Our unique 14 day photo tour takes us from the spice markets and historic monuments of Istanbul to the magical moonscape of Cappadochia and will introduce us to the best the country has to offer.

For centuries, Istanbul, formerly known as Constantinople, was the center of the civilized world. This remarkable city is home to the famous Blue Mosque, the Byzantine Hippodrome, where once chariots raced, and the Beylerbeyi Palace, the summer residence of Ottoman Sultans.

For many, the highlight of the trip will be our time spent off the beaten path as we observe the beginnings of human civilization at the Neolithic settlements in Sanliurfa. We will explore the region around Mount Nemroud in the Taurus Mountains, visiting Byzantine monasteries and marvel at the ancient and unique ‘beehive’ dwelling in Harran.

Join Amina Mohamed on this extraordinary mixed company journey where you will be immersed in local culture, meet people that call this country home, sample delicious food and wine, and of course be expertly guided to improve your photography and capture incredible images of this remarkable destination.
