Book Description

The Turkish Coast from Izmir to Antalya is an area of incredible natural drama, rich in the ruins of antiquity.

It is a prime focus for many cultured holiday makers visiting the region by land, yacht and gulet. With accounts ranging from the excitement of archaeological discovery, or the route march of Alexander’s army, to the pleasures of the hammam and Turkish cooking, this latest addition to the through writers’ eyes series will satisfy the appetites of travellers real and armchair.

Sources range from the classical to the contemporary: from The Odyssey and Plutarch to Freya Stark, Jeremy Seal and Louis de Bernière.
And from Lord Byron, George Bean, Ernle Bradford, Patrick Kinross, Tim Severin, William Travis and Bruce Clark.
