Walks around Çeşme

Wander through the coastal town and up into the stunning green countryside to breathe in the fresh Turkish air. The picturesque setting is perfect for photo opportunities as you walk across natural terrain, under trees and past thick olive groves.

See the attractive Mastic Trees that were first discovered 6000 years ago, whose fruits are used to make the alcoholic drink, Raki. The trees are not only beautiful to look at, but their fruits are also a healing remedy. The ancient physicians of Greece often used the fragrant Mastic jelly to treat snakebites, rabies and intestinal disorders. Today the ingredient is still used by 25 national pharmaceutical companies for many different purposes.
