Greece and Turkey: Wonders of the ancient world
Day 1-3 Athens
Climb to the top of Acropolis Hill; and you’ll encounter the ancient Parthenon, one of the ancient world’s great wonder. See the changing of the guard outside Parliament, known for the pom-poms on their shoes above everything else. It’s only a short ride down to the city’s port, Piraeus, where you can catch a ferry to the Greek Islands.

Day 4-7 Bodrum
Travel to the Turkish resort of Bodrum for a holiday and you’ll be one in a million. Don’t be put off by its popularity, however. A strict building code means there are plenty of whitewashed homes trimmed with blue windows to form the perfect backdrop to your travel snaps. The mausoleum here was considered one of the wonders of the ancient world until it was destroyed in an earthquake, its stones reused in the town’s castle which still stands.
