Turkey - The Agean
Visiting the Aegean Region of Turkey takes visitors on a panoramic, classical journey. Here it is easy to imagine the sculpture classes at Aphrodisias, and the busy streets of ancient Ephesus. Most of the modern-day Turkey was once part of the eastern Roman Empire, known as Asia Minor. Many of the remote classical sites in the Aegean region formed part of the ancient Caria, and independent kingdom.
The Aegean Region contains many Christian sights. The Seven Churches of the Apocalypse, mentioned in the Book of Revelations, surround Izmir; the last resting place of the Virgin Mary which is just outside the Ephesus.
Together, let's go back to a story of spanning some 5,000 years ago of Greek and Roman History, where homer's myths and heroes come to life..
