One of the most beautiful beaches I have ever seen in my life, the beach of Iztuzu. A strip of land of fine and white sand that forms a natural barrier between the delta of the Dalyan River and the Mediterranean Sea. A paradise where you can enjoy the natural beauty of the environment, the crystal color of the sea and the Dalyan River and its peculiar mouth.

Asansor means elevator in Turkish. This historic building was built in 1907 by an accommodated Jewish citizen named Nesim Levi Bayraklıoğlu, who wanted to facilitate the daily life of District of Karatas inhabitants. In this area of Izmir, the mountain is very close to the sea and district is split in two by a vertical cut of more than twenty meters high. Read the rest of this entry
King Midas soon realized that converting everything he touched into gold was not a blessing but a curse. Then he begged god Dionysius to take that from him and also to change to normal everything what he had turned gold. Dionisio said that Midas should wash his hands in the source of Pactolo River.

On the beaches and fields of Gallipoli peninsula a terrible battle was fought in 1915 with unexpected consequences, three nations remember those days as the birth of their national identity. Australia, New Zealand and Turkey would no longer be the same after the fightings for the control of Dardanelles Strait. Turkish authorities wanted to pay tribute to those more than 100,000 men who lost their lives in Gallipoli and to this end, the peninsula, despite the beauty of its landscapes, has remained outside the touristic pressure. Of course, this tour will not disappoint to those who decide to take it.
