This Video of Turkey is Magical!

Well, if this isn’t the most stunning video of Turkey you’ve ever seen, please do prove us wrong. This gripping 3-minute collection of images comes from Leonardo Dalessandri, a filmmaker/director who does a fine job of capturing not just Turkey’s stunning landscapes, but also the Turkish people carrying out their everyday lives.

According to the video description, Dalessandri travelled over 3,500 kilometres in just 20 days, “capturing landscapes from the bluish tones of Pamukkale to the warm ones of Cappadocia.” His journeys also included Ephesus, Istanbul, and Konya. He sampled the local cuisine, including everything from baklava to Turkish tea, and he became well acquainted with the famous Turkish hospitality.

You can have the same experiences, too. Guides worldwide will tell you that Turkey is a safe and delightful place to travel, no matter what time of year it is. Guides can lead you through the unique landscape of Cappadocia, including Goreme Panorama, the Goreme Open Air Museum, and, of course, the famous Pasabağ Fairy Chimney Valley. The hot air balloon ride over Cappadocia is a special bucket list item for many.

In Istanbul, guides will take you through the city streets, with a visit to Hagia Sophia (the Church of Holy Wisdom), also featured in this video. You’ll get to know all the famous Byzantine and Ottoman Empires landmarks. History buffs may want to stick to the Aegean Coast, where you’ll find one of the world’s best-preserved towns from Ancient Greece: Ephesus.

Enjoy, and then check out the guides and trips that will let you see it all – up close and personal!
