About Dodecanese Islands:

The twelve Dodecanese Islands lie in the southeast corner of the Aegean Sea, boasting one of the sunniest climates in Greece.

As diverse as they are beautiful, the Dodecanese are the complete Greek package offering a wide range of attractions including stunning beaches, exquisite food, historic wonders and architectural masterpieces.

The most visited and popular island, Rhodes is rich with medieval history and offers the perfect setting for romantic strolls in its famed Old Town. Thrilling activities come in abundance on the Dodecanese, too, particularly on Telendos, where you can scuba-dive through an ancient sunken city.

The Dodecanese Islands offer plenty of great departure points for numerous European destinations, as well as frequent routes within the islands themselves. Due to the quantity of islands in this region, travelling by ferry is by far the most convenient way to get around.

About Turkey:

Turkey is on the Mediterranean in Western Asia, with a small section in Southeastern Europe, with the Mediterranean Sea on the Southwest, the Aegean Sea on the West and the Black Sea on the North.

As the cradle of cultures and civilisations connecting Europe and Asia, Turkey is well known to have accumulated a large cultural heritage of historic sites and archaeological wonders. However, apart from the historical relics, there’s much more to be admired, from its soaring mountains and fertile valleys, to its sleepy villages and white sand beaches, all as part of the Turkish legacy.
