Stop At: Princes' Islands, Princes' Islands

Escape the hustle and bustle of the city life, spend a day sailing, and visit the charming Princes’ Islands. Sit back, relax, and feel the Turkish air against your skin as you island-hop along the Sea of Marmara.

Also known as Adalar, the Princes’ Islands were once a solitary place for monks and a place of exile during the Byzantine era; they are now a popular destination for locals and tourists. Bicycles and horse-drawn carriages replace motorized vehicles on these oases of peace and quiet. There are a total of 9 islands making up the Adalar, but only 4 are open to the public.

Embark on your cruise along the deep blue waters of the Marmara Sea. As you head for the main island of Büyük Ada, stop at the smaller inhabited islands along the way to see their unique characteristics. Upon arrival at Büyük Ada, the largest and most famous among the Princes’ Islands, enjoy a short guided walking tour through the streets decorated with beautiful wooden houses.
