Glimpse of Turkey

Phaselis was founded in the 7th century BC. It flourished as a commercial trading centre where anything could be bought and sold, including citizenships for 100 drachmas! The Phaselians were more concerned about preserving the affluence of their commerce than with staking any political independence, so they pragmatically accepted any conquerors who came their way. 


In 2015 this trip will change from a group size of maximum 15 to maximum 16.
