A Bridge Across Continents

Over the centuries the fortunes, the people and the geographic borders of the countries and islands of the Aegean region have changed many times

Political and religious differences between the countries bordering the Aegean have often divided the people, raising invisible barriers to cultural exchange

5000 years of turbulent history has left its mark, with an untold wealth of historical buildings both in Greece and Turkey. The dawning of the third millennium has heralded a warming of relations between Turkey and Greece, paving the way for some exciting tourism opportunities

It is now easier than ever to combine a visit to the Turkish Aegean region with a visit to the nearby Greek Islands, making it possible to explore a region that not only spans the entire history of civilization, but also two continents

The Aegean Triangle

For every travelers first visit to Turkey, a few days in Istanbul is almost mandatory. Istanbul has been at the crossroad between East and West since the continents of Europe and Asia were formed. The legacy is a wealth of historical buildings and an atmosphere not to be missed.

Access from Istanbul to Bodrum, the premier Turkish coastal resort right in the heart of the Aegean region, is easy and fast. Bodrum, Halikarnassos in ancient times, is an ideal location from which to explore the many historical sites and to appreciate the beauty of the rugged Turkish landscape

A short distance to the west, and parallel to the Turkish Aegean resorts from Marmaris to Kusadasi, are the Greek Islands in the Dodecanese chain that include Rhodes, Leros, Kalimnos, Kos, Symi and Patmos, further west is the famous Island of Santorini

In ancient times this region was was united under the rule of successive dynasties. The division of the region by political and national boundaries are once again eroding; there has never been a better time to visit the Aegean Triangle

Santorini

Probably the most impressive of all the Greek Islands, Santorini is the most southerly island in the Cyclades group. It is included here as a tour option because of its extraordinary beauty formed from the geological changes that took place at the time of the volcanic explosion in 1450BC

The Minoan City, destroyed by a volcano in the 15th Century BC, has now been excavated revealing many paintings and other artifacts 

The Islands archaeological museum houses a collection of pots and other treasures dating from the Roman era
