To truly explore the inner reaches of Turkey, you should have a plan, a GPS and a map. Once you have these things you're set to go on what is possibly the most epic road trip you will have ever experienced in your life. Turkey is a land of delights and mystery that spans across the entire area it encompasses. Ever since the days of the Ottoman Empire, this country has been one that has inspired awe in many people around the globe. To truly get a glimpse of the real Turkey, the country that lies underneath all of the glamour and the glitz, you need to have more freedom to do your own thing. Driving from Western Europe into Turkey can be quite tiring so it might be a more prudent decision to pick up your RV when you finally get into the country. Campanda offers convenient pickup services for our clients' convenience. After you get the RV you've booked, it's time to set off on the long road through Turkey!
The history of Turkey has been very colorful and even up to the early 20th Century, this part of the world has played host to a collection of historical events that shape political and social decisions in the world today. However, one of the less explored parts of Turkey's past was when the Romans ruled this area of Europe. An ancient theatre that was used by the Romans still exists to this day in Aspendos. Built during the reign of Emperor Marcus Aurelius, the theatre fell into ruin but was later resurrected as a caravanserai, meaning that the structure was continually repaired and preserved so that we can get a glimpse of this ancient wonder today with our own eyes.
Nobody ever associates Turkey with sweeping beaches, but Patara is a beach that is exceptional in its beauty. This 14 kilometer (eight and a half mile) expanse of beach is one of the longest stretches of open sandy coast that can be found anywhere in the Mediterranean. What's even stranger is that aside from a small cafe, the beach has no other buildings on it, although it does have the ruins of Roman and Lycian buildings at the edge of the beach itself. As a natural site, it serves as one of the nesting locations of the Loggerhead turtle. If you go to Patara beach in your RV rental in Turkey you'll see exactly how entrancing sand dunes dancing on the beach can be, because you can see them all the way down to where the water meets the land.
Pamukkale ("cotton castle") is another rare wonder that Turkey has kept to itself over many years. When you first enter the area the rocks look as though they might be chalk, like the White Cliffs of Dover. As you get closer however, you realize the rocks are different and their startlingly pure white look has made them a much visited attraction in recent years. The stones are arranged in terraces and are made of a sedimentary type of rock called travertine. People frequent the area in order to bathe in the mineral pools of water there since it is rumored that they have healing properties. This site is also the location of the ruins of the city of Hierapolis and the temples, baths and other monuments can still be discerned from the surrounding area.
In the ancient world, Ephesus was one of the cities that you needed to visit since the Temple of Artemis that was located there was considered one of the wonders of the world. Today, the Library of Celsus is one of the few remaining shells that can be seen of the great city of Ephesus which was burnt to the ground by a mod in 401AD. The library was built around 125AD and was purported to have held as much as 12,000 scrolls of varying subjects. It was built as a memorial to Celsus, the Governor of Asia at that time. Although the original building was in disrepair when it was found, the facade was painstakingly recreated in the 1970's to its current glory.
One of the things a few people who look at an RV rental in Turkey ask about are the campsites. As of late, Turkey has embraced camper culture and there are a lot of places that offer parking of campers as well as amenities nearby for their operators. Because Turkish people are among the most hospitable in Europe, you can even impose on them a little if you're in a pinch. Most gas station owners or roadside cafes allow RV's to park temporarily in their car parks. As far as adventure goes, there is certainly no shortage of that in Turkey. There are hiking trails that stretch from coast to coast as well as cycling trails that take you through some of the most scenic views in all of Europe. Anyone who says that Turkey isn't worth seeing has never seen these views with their own two eyes. They are enough to make you stop and stare in wonder.
