What to Expect

Bursa Day Trip from Istanbul
Our journey starts with with pick-up service early in the morning between 08:00 am. and 08:30 am. and than a ferry down to Yalova, enjoying the lovely conutry-side view.

Drive to Bursa, former Ottoman Capital which was founded by the Bitnynian King Prusias I Cholus "the Lame" (reigned 228-185 BC), and he also gave his name -altered to the Hellenistic "Prusa"- the city. Legend has it that the great Carthaginian general Hannibal helped him to choose the site. The city is frequently cited as "Yeşil Bursa" (meaning "Green Bursa") in a reference to the beautiful parks and gardens located across its urban tissue, as well as to the vast forests in rich variety that extend in its surrounding region.

The city is synonymous with the mountain Uludag which towers behind the city core and which is also a famous ski resort. The mausoleums of early Ottoman sultans are located in Bursa and the numerous edifices built throughout the Ottoman period constitute the city's main landmarks.
