Istanbul and Cappadocia Getaway during the 15th Istanbul Biennial

Istanbul blends the perfect combination of history, nature and luxury. From Ottoman era mosques to navy blue Bosphorus shores, rich Turkish culinary heritage to vibrant street life, Istanbul offers the perfect getaway for savvy independent travellers. 

On this special multi-day itinerary, we’ve summed up the best of Istanbul for you in perfect harmony with the Istanbul Biennial: A Good Neighbour. We also added the magical landscape of Cappadocia to our program. This unique itinerary below is available between 16 September to 12 November 2017. For Istanbul part, we offer two different hotel options: (1) The Ritz-Carlton Istanbul or (2) Adahan Istanbul. For Cappadocia, the accommodation will be at Taskonaklar Boutique Hotel located in Uchisar village.

Biennial theme: "A Good Neighbour"

The 15th Istanbul Biennial will take place between 16 September and 12 November 2017. Its title is “A Good Neighbour” and the curators are Michael Elmgreen and Ingrad Dragset duo, who are also known as Elmgreen & Dragset. According to the curators, the 15th Istanbul Biennial will deal with multiple notions of home and neighborhoods, exploring how living models in our private sphere have changed throughout the past decades. 

We take care of your Istanbul travel planning starting from your airport pick-up to private Istanbul walking tours, 15th Istanbul Biennial venue visits and experiences to delicious Turkish dinners and of-course relaxing Turkish bath treats. 

Cappadocia: The land of fairy tale

Imagine a surreal terrain featuring some of the most bizarre geological shapes on the planet, perforated with caves ingeniously fashioned by earthlings. Then fantasize about laying eyes on and roaming the unearthly scenery while keeping your vitals intact. Such is a travel experience in Cappadocia - arguably the most extraordinary region in Turkey, if not in the world.
