Standing alongside Turkey’s ‘Great Mountain’ (Mount Uludag), the city of Bursa may offer a rather modern appearance, but was actually the 14th-century capital of the historic Ottoman Empire. Therefore, for many locals, Bursa really does serve as the origin of Turkish culture and remains a city with an extremely important past, which dates back more than 2,200 years.
Following a pick-up from your Istanbul hotel, take the ferry across the Marmara Sea at Eskihisar and drive on to Bursa in the southern Marmara region.
For the top sightseeing in Bursa, tourists will soon discover that the Cekirge neighbourhood is where many of the best historical attractions are to be found, and is known for its famous spas and mineral waters. The Hamams (Turkish Baths) of Bursa are also recommended, along with cable car rides to the top of Mount Uludag, and a visit to the tea gardens of the Culture Park (Kultur Park). For a taste of the city’s rich Turkish history, the 15th-century Muradiye Complex (Muradiye Külliye) mosque is a must, as are the famed Tombs of Osman and Orhan.
During the day, you can visit the Ulu Cami (Grand Mosque) to admire the landmark of Ottoman architecture, and explore the old silk market in the covered bazaar. Shop for local produce, such as chestnuts, honey, olive oil, and soft Turkish Delight.
Climb Uludag mountain for a barbecue lunch with panoramic vistas. For something quite different to the historical attractions of Bursa, the cable car rides (telerifik) up Mount Uludag really are not to be missed, whatever the time of the year. In the height of the summer season, the mountain’s cable cars transport tourists away from the heat of the city and into the cooler mountain air, where countless scenic picnic spots await. Those riding on the cable cars of Mount Uludag can stop off part way for horse riding, or journey to the very top, to the gift shops, eateries and panoramic views. The cable car ride to the summit of Mount Uludag lasts around 30 minutes, during which time you can expect to enjoy some very impressive Turkish scenery, so do bring your camera along for the ride. Your time is free to enjoy optional adventure activities, such as a thrilling ATV safari along the mountain trails, skiing at one of Turkey’s most popular ski resorts, and more.
After the tour, you will transfer back to your hotel in Istanbul.
