The Western Shores of Turkey : Discovering the Aegean and Mediterranean Coasts Paperback
by John Freely
The Western coast of Turkey has captivated travellers for centuries.
With its dramatic mountains and idyllic bays and promontories, scattered with ancient ruins, it is not only one of the most beautiful parts of the country, but is also of great historical interest.
The Western Shores of Turkey is the distillation of a succession of journeys that John Freely made along this coast - an odyssey spanning a quarter of a century.
From Istanbul to Antakya (Antioch) on the Syrian border, he discovered both the charm of modern Turkey and the wonders of its past.
The result is both an informative guide and a remarkable travelogue for all who follow in his footsteps.
