Thrace Vacation Packages
Thrace isn't the only place in Istanbul - Marmara Region worth exploring; those with enough time can also set out to see the magic of the nearby landscapes, towns and cities. If you're looking for other places to check out, you'll find Kemal, 25 miles (40 kilometers) to the northwest, and Demirkoy 35 miles (56 kilometers) to the west.
When it's time to explore beyond Thrace, check out the nearest regional city. Edirne is 35 miles (56 kilometers) away and is home to attractions like Trakya University, Bedesten and Selimiye Mosque. Make sure you don't rush back to Thrace until you've spent a little time at Edirne's Eski Mosque and Serefeli Mosque.
For a window into the local culture, head to Istanbul - Marmara Region's indoor markets, history museums and art museums. Get outside and make a tour of Istanbul - Marmara Region's many gardens and open-air exhibits.
Why not spend some time with a knowledgable local guide and book a tour? City walking tours and culinary tours are popular in this area.
Istanbul - Marmara Region cuisine has its own unique flavors, so do try some of the more popular local dishes. Wheat and grapes are some of the commonly used ingredients. All-time favorite foods are iskender kebap (lamb with yogurt on pita bread) and lahmacun (turkish pizza), but there are many other fine meal options for foodies to try. Those who can still find room for a little more, can order tavuk göğüsü (milk pudding), a great way to complete your Istanbul - Marmara Region culinary experience. Many travelers don't feel a culinary journey is complete unless they've tried the wine commonly enjoyed by locals. Try chardonnay or riesling.
When you are ready to pack up and say "Hoşçakal" to Thrace, you'll be loaded with happy memories to keep forever.
