Turkish Aegean Coast travel guide

4.3
Abounding with the smell of local olive farms and citrus plantations, Turkish Aegean Coast offers stunning beaches dotted with picturesque harbors. Colorful parachutes float gently above the clear, turquoise water. The warm climate year-round makes the area a vacation destination in any season. Neighboring modern cities feature palm-lined streets, neoclassical architecture, and ruins from ancient times. You'll find yourself surrounded with fertile valleys in this region, as small lush hills rise out of the sea. Learn about the ancient art and philosophy that the coast inspired in this land of wine, honey, and olive oil.
