What’s going on with Turkey visas for Americans?
We're happy to inform you that US passport holders can obtain an electronic visa now and explore Turkey, the most enchanting country in the world.
Turkey is located at the crossroads of Europe and Asia, bridging continents and holding tremendous ancient history. It is a fascinating cultural mosaic, rich in treasures from famed empires spanning 5,000 + years. It’s also a paradise for relaxation amid breathtaking settings.
What makes Turkey such a special place to visit?
Istanbul, Turkey's the most important and biggest city, with its 20.000.000 + population, home to the architecturally astonishing Hagia Sophia, the magnificent Topkapi Palace, bustling Grand Bazaar and the storied Bosphorus. Magnificent ruins pop up in such places as Ephesus (see above), once the second-largest city in the Roman Empire, while Cappadocia astounds visitors with its Byzantine fresco-filled caves and needle-like towers, formed by solidified, eroded volcanic ash. And the sublimely blue waves of the Aegean Sea beckon for relaxing sailing cruises by traditional gulet, complete with stops for snorkeling, hiking rocky shorelines, wandering vivacious small-town markets, and meeting local chefs.
In addition to all there is to see, the Turkish people are incredibly welcoming and the food is fabulous, infused with the flavors of the many cultures that have influenced the region.
