Day 1 – ISTANBUL / IZMIR / PERGAMON / KUSADASI
Upon arrival at Istanbul Ataturk Airport, we connect directly to a domestic flight to Izmir by TK2312 (08:00/09:05). Drive north to the hauntingly beautiful Pergamon. Among the impressive structures of this city, dating from 399 B.C., we will see the Altar of Zeus, Temple of Dionysus and the 200,000 volume library which was surpassed only by that found in Alexandria at the time. The Asclepieum of Pergamon was a famous health centre where methods of treatment included blood transfusions, music therapy and meditation. Drive to Kusadasi for overnight.
