Nurtured by Ottoman, Greek and Roman influences, Turkey's culture is just as varied as the landscapes.
To brush up on your history, head for Ankara and the Museum of Anatolian Civilisations. Its large collection of artefacts, from the Palaeolithic era to the time of the Ottomans is an incredible archaeological journey.
Continue your cultural immersion in the ancient Halicarnassus: just 30 minutes from your Club Med Bodrum Palmiye resort, your stay in Turkey leads you to Bodrum’s Greek amphitheatre, which has been perfectly preserved since the 4th century BC.
Just a few metres from the amphitheatre, take a running jump into the medieval period by visiting Bodrum Castle, which was built by the Order of Hospitallers.
