Following the breakfast we will drive to the old city where we will visit the Topkapi Palace. Perched on a hill that commands the Sea of Marmara, the Bosphorus, and the Golden Horn, this vast complex has been the seat of government of the Ottoman Empire for many centuries (1453-1852).

We will finish up the day in the bustling Grand Bazaar , with nearly 4000 shops of antiques, jewelry, gold, carpets and leatherwear. (B/L).

Day 3: Istanbul / Cappadocia.
Early in the morning we will fly to Kayseri for the Cappadocia Valley in the heart of the Anatolian Plateau, and marvel at the twisted lunar landscape. Successive eruptions of a now-extinct volcano left the plateau covered with volcanic tuff, which was transformed by intense erosion into beautiful landscapes of cones, columns, and canyons. Between the 4th and 13th centuries Christians hewed dwellings and sanctuaries from the rock, totally incorporating the architecture into the landscape. (B/D).
