(from Istanbul)

(Available every day!)


Day - 1: Istanbul to Trabzon
Early in the morning, we will meet you at your hotel and transfer you to the Istanbul domestic airport for a 1-hour 30-minute flight from Istanbul to Trabzon.
Upon arrival, you will be met by your guide and who will accompany you on a guided tour of Sumela Monastery. On the way, we will see Gumushane and Karaca Cave in the picturesque Pontic Mountains.
After our visit, we will drive to Trabzon, where we'll see Hagia Sophia Church and Ataturk's Mansion. You may then spend the rest of the day exploring Trabzon.
Overnight stay in Trabzon
A little about Trabzon:
The earliest evidence of civilization in Trabzon dates back to 7,000 BC. Established as a Greek colony (along with Amasra and Sinop), the town benefited from its position on the busy trade route running between the Black Sea and the Mediterranean. It grew quickly and was a focal point for the Pontic kings. At the beginning of the 13 th century, the Commagene dynasty established its capital at Trabzon. During the Commagene era, the city gained a reputation as a beautiful abd sophisticated cultural center. The Genoese and the Venetians came here to trade as Trabzon was the terminus of a northern branch of the Silk Route. In 1461, Trabzon fell under Ottoman rule.

* Sumela Monastery sits high up on the cliffs of Mela, southeast of Trabzon. It was founded in the 4th century by two Greek monks, Barnabas and Sophronius, who were guided to the site by an icon of a "black" image of the Virgin Mary, elegantly painted by St. Luke. After their deaths, Sumela became a place of pilgrimage. Decorated with frescoes, Sumela's treasures include priceless manuscripts and silver plates. Since the monastery was rebuilt several times, the ruins seen today date largely to the 19th century. During the Ottoman era, Sumela enjoyed the protection of the sultans, but it was ultimately abandoned and also badly-damaged during the War of Independence. In recent years, thankfully, extensive restoration has been carried out.
