Description

The city of Bursa in north-western Turkey is the governmental centre of the Bursa Province. Located 63 miles south-east of Istanbul, Bursa was the first capital of the Ottoman Empire in 1326.

Located at the foot of the mountain of Uludag, this city is surrounded by hills and farmland with sufficient rainfall and temperatures ranging from –16°C in winter to 40°C during summer. The city, famous for its beautiful parks and gardens, has earned the name of ‘Yeşil Bursa’, meaning ‘green Bursa’.

After breakfast at hotel, meet your Guide and depart by ferry-boat to Yalova, enjoying the lovely countryside view, then by luxury coach to the city of Bursa*, which dates back to the 2nd century B.C. The first capital of the Ottoman Empire, Bursa is one of the greatest treasure houses of Islamic architecture. We will first visit the Green Mosque and the neighbouring Green Mausoleum,  both world-renowned for their superb tile decorations, as well as the late 14th century Great Mosque and the Koza Han, which for centuries was the center of Bursa’s flourishing silk trade. As the capital of Turkey’s silk production and importation, Bursa was also the home of the skilled artisans who produced kaftans, pillows, embroidery and other silk products for the Ottoman palaces until the 17th century. Afterwards, enjoy a leisurely cable car ride up the slopes of Mount Olympus, in Turkish, Uludag (subject to weather conditions), or if the cable car is not running, take in the panoramic views from beneath the more than 1,000 year-old plane tree that gives Cinaralti its name. Lunch is at one of Bursa’s most highly-regarded traditional Turkish restaurants, the Daruzziyafe, where we will enjoy the finest authentic Ottoman cuisine in a historic setting, where Sultan Murat the Second once dined.

Note : If the cable car closes in the event of the bad weather conditions, Cinaralti will be substituted for Mount Olympus (Uludag).
