The Aegean Coast possesses some of the most spectacular & significant of Turkey's archaeological sites with a rich cultural legacy from early Greek, Roman & Ottoman civilizations. The ancient cities of Ephesus & Troy are permeated with the past, where amphitheatres, chariot-rutted streets & columns reek of historical importance. It was here that St Paul laid the foundations for the beginnings of Christianity, & where the face of legendary beauty, Helen of Troy, 'launched a thousand ships'. Besides historical attractions, the Aegean is known for its magnificent coastal scenery & long stretches of sandy beaches, where pine trees & olive groves clad the hills surrounding popular resorts like Bodrum & Kusadasi.
