Student Trips to Turkey
Sitting between Europe and Asia, Turkey bridges the gap between the East and the West. Thanks to its central position, it has a wealth of influences from the Middle East, the Mediterranean and Asia; making it a great country for a cultural learning experience.
The capital city of Istanbul has previously been ruled by the Greeks, Romans and Venetians, before the Ottomans came to town and decided to stay. The city’s strategic position along the legendary Silk Road made it an appealing place for merchants, many of whom also decided to reside there. This gives the city an multicultural appeal that makes it almost unlike any other city on earth.
The city is home to palaces and mosques that are intricately decorated with mosaics and murals, for artistic landmarks that will inspire students of any discipline. In addition, the city is home to an impressive selection of art galleries, museums and festivals, making it a great choice for any visitor looking for artistic inspiration.
With its cultural diversity, it makes Turkey the ultimate foodie destination. The melting pot of cuisines includes Asian and Italian dishes alongside Turkish classics, such as pide, kofte and meze.
Outside of the capital city, is the strange yet visually stunning area of Cappodocia. Sure to be on any explorer’s bucket list, this region in central Turkey has come to prominence thanks to its unique rock formations, often called ‘fairy chimneys’. Thanks to its iconic geological, historic and cultural features, it’s a visit that will leave a lasting mark on your students.
