Check out the visitor attractions in Assos. The the Temple of Athena is one of these.
For a truly authentic Turkey experience, make sure you also look beyond Assos and taste the cultural and scenic treasures that the region offers. Cunda Island and Ezine are two more places worth seeing while you're in Turkey.
Each place has its own fascinating history and Turkey has its own stories to tell. The historic palaces in these parts are particularly interesting. Visitors seeking out places to reflect upon life's great mysteries, will enjoy visiting the region's churches.
Why not challenge yourself with a a completely different experience during your stay in this region. Try parachute jumping; you'll never forget it. When the sun is shining, follow the locals and head to the area's cooling waterways for a spot of swimming or boating.
Sometimes, the most rewarding travel moments are waiting in local cafés and restaurants. Sample a couple of the popular local dishes, including boyoz (pastry) and kaburga dolması (stuffed ribs). Baklava (pastry with chopped nuts), is the perfect way to wrap up your meal. Efes Light is a common beer here. So head to the nearest drinking establishment, pull up a stool and enjoy it!
As your time here draws to an end, spend what's left of your liras on last-minute keepsakes and say Hoşçakal to the locals you've met and the places you've enjoyed.
