Tour Itınerary

09:00 You will be picked up from your hotel and drive to Sirince Villige. This old Greek village in the mountains of Selcuk is typical example of old villages in Anatolia. Old houses and churches are well kept and the authenticity still remains. Sirince was knowen as Cirkince (ugly). Indeed its habitants gave this name on purpose as they did not want to be bothered by foreigners nor to share the beauty of their village. However, after years visitors understood that the village was not ugly at all and called it Sirince ("pretty").All the narrow streets of the village belong to the women, selling handcrafts of all kinds, olive oil. Another attraction of Sirince is its wine: try its taste in small cafés or in the former municipal school restorated. Sirince village is a perfect synthesis of Turk-Greek culture as of the 1920's: after the Independence War, people exchange between Greek and Turks has occurred and all those typical Greek houses, though they kept their original outside characteristics, have received the local layout inside. The most beautiful specimens are open to visitors. And even in the courtyard of one of them, one will discover a nicely restorated Orthodox church.
You will have your lunch in a small charming weaving village where you will see carpet dying, spinning and weaving. You will have the chance to meet with the Turkish villagers and learn more about the Turkish culture and the hospitality.
16:00 At the end of the tour, drive back to hotel and overnight in Selcuk / Kusadasi.

It was a nice trip to life of locals in the village, close to Kusadasi. The history of the village was better and mostly people should know it from 2012. It is nice, small, liveable village.
