The Rough Guide to Turkey is the most comprehensive travel guide to this unique country straddling both Europe and Asia-and bordering countries as diverse as Greece in the west and Iran in the east. Alongside an array of stunning images, you'll find insightful coverage of everything this country offers: from the Mediterranean beaches that play host to nesting turtles to the soaring mountain ranges spangled with Alpine flowers, from legendary ancient sites, such as Troy, to the exotic domed skyline of Byzantine and Ottoman-era Istanbul. You'll also find detailed advice in this book on how to travel through this vast and varied country. Up-to-date descriptions of the best eating and drinking places, hotels, and shops suit all budgets. And city maps help you navigate the fifteen-million-plus metropolis of Istanbul as well as smaller destinations, such as the frontier settlement of Dogubeyazit, in the shadow of biblical Mt. Ararat.
