An in-depth study of Turkey’s less well-known side, but one that holds a greater fascination for active tourism enthusiasts. Starting from the Ski Silk Road, ready to lead the way in winter tourism, which is now fairly well developed at infrastructure level. The objective is to create a Winter Tourism Corridor that focuses on the vast territory of Anatolia, a still relatively unknown region for most, but of great appeal for sportspeople, who can enjoy the following various themed roads: Adventure Silk Road, Bike Silk Road, Wellness Silk Road, Culture Silk Road, all coordinated by the same DMO.
The focus on Turkey will be completed with a presentation of Göbeklitepe – a really important archaeological site that was added to the UNESCO World Heritage list in 2018 – by the Director of the Culture and Information Office of the Turkish Embassy, Serra Aytun Roncaglia.
