Separated by a border and the sparkling Aegean Sea, Turkey and Greece have competed for the region’s mythical beauty since before. Homer wrote epic poems.
Today, the tension has mostly subsided, and relics of a glorious past remain. See where the Greeks emerged from the Trojan Horse in Troy, and where ruins feel complete in Ephesus. In Istanbul, you’ll learn even more history in the cathedral-turned-mosque-turned-museum known as the Hagia Sophia, and brush up on your street smarts while haggling at the Grand Bazaar.
Next, East meets West as you cruise through the Greek Islands—including Santorini—nd gaze upon Athens’ own masterpiece, the Parthenon.
