Take a full-day private tour of Trabzon and explore a city with millennia of history and streets decorated with Byzantine and Ottoman architecture. Trabzon is a city of such beauty and history that it is widely considered the jewel of Turkey’s Black Sea coastline. Enjoy architecture from different periods, and watch them shape the appearance and history of the city.
A booked tour of Trabzon city is like exploring an estate; only this time, architects and artisans of the buildings are from different periods in history. Get ready to learn the history of the city, as told by the different architectural designs of its buildings.
From sightseeing to hidden gems, Trabzon has it all!
One of the best highlights of the region is this awe-inspiring monastery. Built by the Greeks in the 4th century, the ruins of this monastery clinging to the side of a sheer cliff. The location will mean a little bit of hiking, but once up top, you will get to appreciate the beautiful scenery as you look down at the evergreen forests below.
Experience the serene environment that brought Greek monks high up the cliff, all while enjoying the view of the region from above. Due to ongoing restoration, going inside the monastery is prohibited. Nonetheless, the unique location and architecture of the monastery and the resulting scenery will be breathtaking enough.
After we conclude our visit to the Medieval Greek monks high up the cliffs, we will go to a local restaurant for lunch. Here you will have a taste of the famous Akcaabat Meatballs. Treat yourself to tasty regional flavors before our tour of this magnificent city resumes.
The Ataturk Pavilion is a building filled with so much heritage. The home was built at the start of the 20th century and was the favored stop of Ataturk, the founder of modern Turkey. The villa still retains much of its early furniture and is still in excellent condition. Explore the rooms of this majestic villa that won the favor of the founder of this magnificent nation.
The Hagia Sophia museum, built in the 13th century AD, is widely regarded as one of Byzantine architecture’s finest remnants. The museum’s architecture and use by first Christians and later on, Muslims make it one of Trabzon’s unique structures. As part of your museum tour, you can view the artifacts from the region’s history as you learn more about the building.
Whereas historical architecture is the main attraction in Trabzon, it is not the only attraction. Boztepe hill towers over the city with a beautiful park up top. We will have a tour of the hilltop from where you will get a breathtaking view of the city’s bright colors. The hill also has four beautiful fountains due to its religious significance in the region.
You take as many photos of the view as you can.
After treating your eyes to a marvelous view of Trabzon, we will then head to our final destination of the day, Sera Lake. This unusual lake formed when rock debris from the region dammed and created a beautiful lake that now treats visitors with a fantastic view.
Trabzon is a well-trodden path, and there are direct flights from/to Istanbul throughout the day. If you have limited time, yes, this tour will work perfectly to cover in a full day, but we recommend staying for more as there are numerous hidden gems around and its neighboring cities.
