Cruise to historic & natural charms

The popular summer resort town of Dikili, tucked away on the Northwest side of Turkey’s Aegean region, is relatively untouched by tourism, but with its historic and natural charms, it may not be able to hold on to its quiet reputation for long.

Dikili’s picturesque coastal area dates back 5000 BC, and it’s easy to see the remnants of ancient times. Choose from therapeutic hot springs and thermal mud baths, or surround yourself with the rich and diverse history of the ruins of Atarneus, the stunning Acropolis theatre at the city of Pergamon, or the wooden Merkez Mosque, built in 1789 and without the use of nails.

Explore the dormant volcanic crater Lake Kargol, the Nebiler waterfall and caves, and the Denizkoy and Bademli beaches, or sit in the shadow of the hillside at one of the many harborside restaurants for seafood, Turkish specialties, and beautiful landscapes.
