Aphrodisias gate - Yacht charters in Turkey
When on sailing holidays
along the Turkish coasts
you should visit - inland near Pamukkale
- the archaeological site of Aphrodisias
with very interesting excavations. Believed to be of very ancient origin, Aphrodisias had a Sanctuary of Aphrodite (with an oriental looking statue of the goddess), the centre of a widely popular cult, and was also famous for its school of sculptors and its doctors.
Pamukkale is also known as Hierapolis
and can be visited from the major yacht charter
ports of Bodrum, Marmaris
, or Fethiye
. Often such an excursion is included with gulet cruises, which are typical for these coasts. Gulet cruises
are very luxurious sailing holidays with all extras such as air-conditioning, chef cook, hostesses etc.
Gulet holidays are also known as Blue cruises.
