Day 1 Istanbul/Gallipoli
Adorned with treasure from all periods of human history, Istanbul is not only one of the world's most fascinating places, it's also one of its most mesmerising. The Gallipoli Peninsula, a place of devastation and tragedy during World War I, is a place of great beauty and a memorial to all soldiers that fell there.

The Gallipoli Peninsula was declared a national park in 1973 and is blessed with a dramatic coastline, verdant woodlands and stunning views to offset its tumultuous history. The wonderful city of Istanbul has an incredibly rich history, amazing array of architectural styles, a delectable cuisine, vibrant nightlife, fascinating culture and oodles of style.
