Southern Marmara offers visitors plenty of laid-back pastimes, such as picnicking and sunbathing. If you believe the ideal vacation is maxing-out your heart rate in the great outdoors, then check out one of the many mountain climbing or hiking trips this region has to offer.
When it's time to leave, bid a fond Hoşçakal (farewell) to the local characters you have met and the landscapes you've seen.
