A place that will delight every explorer. The city of Myra in Turkey is known for the Lycian tombs (yes, what you see on the picture, are tombs) dug into the rock walls in ancient times due to the belief that deads were taken by winged beings. An interesting stop on the the Turkish coast.

Topkapi Palace, Istanbul. The center of Ottoman might for almost 5 centuries, Topkapi Palace is a place of Oriental mystique, conjuring images of turbaned sultans and their harems, of pasas and eunuchs, and of an empire that wielded transcontinental influence at a time when the West was still living in the Dark Ages. The Treasury Room alone is enough to desensitize a woman to diamonds, rubies, and pearls.
