Wonderful routes with history at the weekend are waiting for us in Aydın. Lets…
Our first stop in the morning is Güllübahçe. First, we have an enormous breakfast in the company of St. Nicholas, aka Santa’s church. After a rich and satisfying breakfast, we go to the ancient city of Priene, which is not far away, and we buy souvenirs so that you will always remember this beautiful tour. After getting information about our ancient city, which is wonderful with its history and nature, we go to Doğanbey Village. The photos we take in the streets of this village, which fascinates with its architecture, immortalize this moment. we become immortal. Then I would like to take you to Karina. You can’t go here without eating fish by the lake. Against the wonderful view, we will feed both our stomachs and our souls with you. On the other hand, we have many reasons to go to the ancient city of Miletus when we are so close. I recommend you to see the protected natural area right next to it, because this is where the road ends. Afterwards, I send you off with the sweet tiredness of having had such a beautiful day. Don’t forget to bring a hat with you when I ask you to. Especially in summer because the sun will always be above us. 🙂
Afrodisias- Yenipazar – Yoruk Ali Efe
For example, what if we had a delicious breakfast at Atça Golbası?
We’re going to be traveling so much during the day that I want to make sure you store your energy first. Afterwards, we will set out with you to the ancient city of Aphrodisias. This is a wonderful ancient city. You should also see the museum, which carries examples from the city’s epic history and rich culture. When we leave the museum, rest assured that we will be thinking about lunch. At the end of a small journey, we arrive in Yenipazar. Here, we taste the legendary Yenipazar Pide and buttermilk with lots of foam. Then we will visit the museum where the tomb of Yörük Ali Efe is located. When our trip is over, I will send you off with the comfort of knowing that we will meet again on new routes. Until then, goodbye.
Arpaz Kalesi – Arapapıstı Canyon- Bozdogan Kemer
Bozdogan Kemer Dam is located here. I don’t know if you’ve seen it before. It’s like a mirage hidden among the mountains. This is exactly where I said we should have our breakfast. After having our breakfast, let’s go towards Arapapıştı Canyon. Maybe we can take a boat tour in the canyon. But no matter what we do, let’s move on to Arpaz Castle, our next place of visit, after taking our selfie against the magnificent view of the special color of the water of the canyon from the moment we step into the canyon. The structure of the castle resembles a mansion, security tower or granary. Castle II. It is named after him because it was built by Arpazlı Hacı Hasan Bey during the reign of Mahmut II. When visiting the castle and listening to its story, one understands better why a special time should be reserved for this place. Then I will bid you farewell by wishing you to sail to new horizons.
