GREEN BURSA

There is no trip to Turkey which is complete without visiting Bursa. As the final stop on the Silk Road, and the first major capital of the Ottoman Empire, Bursa has an extremely rich cultural heritage. Known as ‘Green Bursa’ because of its parks and gardens, this full – day trip explores the verdant city nestled at the foot of Uludag (ancient Mt. Olympus), near by villages and natural wonders. In Bursa we travel through 7000 years of culture and history, experiencing the early Ottoman period and Bursa’s role as a trade center.
