and exciting heritage, centred on the ancient city of Istanbul. But if history is not
your thing, Turkey boasts beach resorts that rival any of its Mediterranean rivals.
Below are just some of the Turkish travel highlights submitted by you, our readers...

The Library of Celsus was erected in AD 135 by Julius Aquila as a mausoleum for his father. It originally housed a library containing 12,000 books, a substantial amount for its time.

I have been going to Marmaris for 3 years now; going back in two weeks. We stayed in sun gezgin last year and it was excellent!! The manager, reception staff and cleaners are all really nice. The rooms are nice, yes basic but thats all you need. You can get room service from the excellent bar/restaurant faulty friends, n at night u walk down and get a table there ready to dance the night away!! Hotel is really clean, no creepy crawlies, should really stay there!! xx
Marmaris is one of Turkey’s larger resorts. Beaches around this popular yachting centre offer all the water sports you could want – from sunset cruises to banana boat rides. Haggle in the Carsi flea market, bop on Bar Street, or choose from hundreds of cosmopolitan menus
