One of the city’s most stunning centerpieces is Hagia Sophia, founded as a basilica and now a museum featuring exquisite mosaics and frescoes. For a taste of Turkish culture, visit the Grand Bazaar, the world’s largest covered market. CRETE’S MYTHOLOGY & AEGEAN BEAUTY.Home to the ancient Minoans and a former Venetian stronghold, Crete harbors a millennia-old history. Greek mythology tells us that Zeus was born here, and Theseus destroyed the Minotaur at Knossos. Later, Saint Titus of Crete preached in Heraklion’s streets. Bask in Aegean breezes while exploring the café-lined Lions Square and the arched gallery of the celebrated Venetian Loggia. EPHESUS. A STROLL INTO ANTIQUITY. One of the world’s best-preserved cities, Ephesus offers an unparalleled look into the world of ancients. The colonnaded facade to the towering Library of Celsus is an awe-inspiring sight, still standing upright over a once-bustling square. You will see the amphitheater, which once held 25,000 spectators.
