Rich in culture and history, Turkey is an infinitely rewarding proposition for the discriminating traveller. Francis Russell has been visiting Turkey for more than thirty years, and with 123 recommended destinations he provides a fascinating and wonderfully well informed itinerary.

This personal and well informed selection and description of the most interesting towns and individual buildings and archaeological sites in Turkey is the definitive guidebook for the discerning traveler. This book will immeasurably enhance any thoughtful traveler's visit, but can also be read at home as an aid to planning, or recalling, a trip, or simply as a guide to the astonishing and multi-faceted artistic and architectural riches of that most fascinating country.

An entertaining selection of the most rewarding places to visit in one of the most historically significant countries in the world. A guide book in its own right, but above all a thoughtful, opinionated, and supremely well informed supplement and corrective to conventional guides.
