Australia has a very proud military history of which the ANZACs play an incredibly important role. One of the great and moving pilgrimages which Australians enjoy making is to the battlefields of Gallipoli.
Trafalgar has limited spaces on its Spirit of the ANZACs guided holiday, which departs from Istanbul on 12 April 2012. You can take part in the Dawn Service at ANZAC Cove and pay your respects to those who gave their lives for this great country.
During the 16-day guided holiday you will discover the beauty of Turkey through visits to Ankara and Antalya. You will revel in the tingling scents and sounds of Istanbul, barter at the spice markets and discover Roman ruins at the sites of the Trojan Wars.
This guided holiday is a perfect opportunity to experience a country that few know much about. As you sit back and relax on a cruise along the Bosphorus, enjoy a night of belly dancing at the Kervansary Nightclub, a well-known Istanbul establishment. The next day you can marvel at the riches of the sultans’ palaces, which impose themselves on the Istanbul landscape, then feel the spiritual calm at the Byzantine Monastic complex of Zelve.
Prices for this guided holiday start from $2499 per person and spaces are filling fast. Book an exclusive airfare deal from Trafalgar and make this the holiday of a lifetime. To find out more or book your spot on the Spirit of the ANZACs guided holiday, visit Trafalgar’s website.
