Turkey Tour Competition: Win a Gulet Cruise

Peter Sommer Travels has teamed up with Current World Archaeology magazine and the Turkish Culture & Tourism Office to offer two lucky people the chance to indulge in an expert led cultural tour and gulet cruise, Sailing Western Lycia, September 25th - October 2nd, 2010. 

Find out what it’s like on a gulet cruise in Turkey.

You will travel on a wonderful gulet from a starting point at the pretty harbour of Göcek, just 30 minutes from Dalaman airport, on Turkey’s Mediterranean coast. The tour is led by Cambridge University Classicist and archaeologist Dr Nigel Spivey. Every day, you will visit one of the antique cities that adorn this timeless Turkish coast, and then stroll along ancient roads lined with wild herbs, olive trees, and rock tombs. You will have the chance to both snorkel over sunken harbours and climb rocky fastnesses for unrivalled vistas. From mighty theatres to churches floored with mosaics, each site is an archaeological adventure, part of a historical puzzle that reveals a remarkable story of human civilisation. Every day there are plenty of opportunities to swim in the crystal waters of the Turquoise coast, to windsurf, kayak, or go for a hike.

Highlights include a visit to Xanthus, the great capital of ancient Lycia, whose magnificent treasures caused an extraordinary stir when they were brought to the British Museum, and a visit of Gemiler Island resplendent with its avenue of Byzantine churches. Full board, road transfers, and entrance fees to archaeological sites will be covered. International flights will be generously provided by the Turkish Culture & Tourism Office in London.

The deadline for entries is midnight on Saturday July 31, 2010.

How to enter: Please answer the following question on ancient Turkey:
