BODRUM / MUĞLA

“The sea not only sharpens a sense of beauty and of alarm, but also a sense of history. You are confronted with precisely the sight which met Caesar’s eyes, and Hannibal’s… Off the magical coast of Turkey you rediscover what the world was like when it was empty… and when pleasures were as simple as getting up in the morning… and every day is a journey of discovery.”


- Sir Peter Alexander Ustinov
