Mediterranean Europe - Turkey (Chapter)
This is the Turkey chapter from Lonely Planet's Mediterranean Europe guidebook.
While many Turks see their country as European, Turkey packs in as many minarets and bazaars as its Middle Eastern neighbours. This bridge between continents has absorbed the best of Europe and Asia. Travellers can enjoy historical hot spots, mountain outposts and expansive steppe without forgoing comfy beds and buses.
