When you visit Marmara, you are actually visiting the gateway from Europe to Asia. The ancient Marmara region history is fascinating, and a good place to start learning the story is in the Ancient Eastern Archaeological Museum which tells the story of ancient Mesopotamia, Egypt, Sumeria and Egypt. There are many other museums in the region including the Fine Arts Museum. But if you spend a weekend, Marmara can truly be experienced by visiting the Kapalicarsi or Grand Bazaar in Istanbul. Started in the 15th century, the marketplace has hundreds of vendors selling local wares. The Marmara region has so much to do you will want to spend a lot longer than a weekend. You can visit the Turkish baths, the ruins of Troy or walk in the footsteps of St. Paul to name just a few activities.
