TRAVEL AEGEAN

If you want to see where the mythological legends arose such as Troy, Mount Ida, Temple of Artemis, Ephesus, Didyma, Mausoleum, it will be the main destination of your private itinerary. The Roman influence is intense in that region but not the only one. Hittites, Amazons, Ionians were some of them who left their traces. Blue Cruise with gullet, paragliding, scuba diving or ATV Safaris are some of the activities that we can add to your private tour program to change the rhythm of your tour.. May to November is the perfect period to visit this region to see the beauties of the nature. By the way, olive and olive oil foods are as legendry as Troy itself; but come after the Aegean Wines.
