Contrast colourful histories and a beguiling mix of cultures on Abercrombie & Kent’s ‘Turkey & Malta: Empires and Outposts’ Limited Edition Small Group Journey.
On this rare combination of two fascinating European destinations, guests will peel back many thousands of years of history in Malta – which houses more historic sights and sites within its compact shores than almost any other country in Europe – and be immersed in the even more ancient heritage of Turkey.
Both countries have been ruled by powerful civilisations, empires that have come and gone and left behind a unique legacy. Seek out what makes these destinations stand out from the rest, exploring some of the world’s most important archaeological sites, appreciating their rich artistic heritage and savouring delicious food and wine thanks to a rich culinary bounty.
