  • Description: Trojan horses, ancient cities and bustling bazaars are some of the highlights on this exploration of Turkey's coast, which starts and ends in vibrant Istanbul. It's Insider moments like… smelling the homely aroma of flour which dusts the rustic table and clings to your fingers, as you learn how to make traditional bread with the locals of Demircidere. Kneading the dough, you hear about the lifestyle in this little village, and learn about the delicious wines, jams and raisins they produce from the olive groves and vineyards that surround them. Later you taste the fruits of their labour, sampling their homemade wine as the rich smell of baking bread fills the air.
