Private Yacht Charters
Turkey is an archaeologist's dream. It has been called the cradle of civilizations, and for good reason. In a land where countless civilizations have come and gone, over millennia the accumulation of archaeological artefacts has even to this day, not been fully discovered. History is so pervasive here that new archaeological discoveries are popping up more frequently than ever, and in the past have lead to the discovery of ancient centres of knowledge such as Troy, Pergamon, Ephesus and many more. Featuring expert tour guides that are very familiar with all visited sites and regions in Turkey, you will feel right at home as you explore Turkey on your archaeological holiday.

Having ancient civilizations in their surroundings has become second nature to the people of Turkey, who accept ancient monuments and artefacts as the norm. They have become accustomed to having historic monuments pervade their lives. Naturally, this has inspired millions of visitors each year. Along the coast, people come and visit archaeological landmarks around the country in places like Bodrum, Fethiye, Kekova, Marmaris, Datca, and many more which make for ideal cruising itineraries that come combine several historical sites for a fantastic holiday experience and to absorb the history from the many ancient sites.
Along the Lycian shore, countless artefacts and long-abandoned villages from the ancient civilizations can be explored for some perspective on how people used to live. The capital of the Lycians and today world heritage site of Xanthos-Letoon is a popular destination along the southern coast, the extraordinary colosseum and library at Ephesus, as well as the once 7th wonder of the world Mausoleum at Halicarnassus, are just some examples of the archaeological highlights that you will explore with our Archaeology Gulet tour.
