Take a break from the city and head to Soganli Valley and Camel Rock. Discover out-of-the-way places like Zemi Valley and Love Valley. The adventure continues: get engrossed in the history at Zelve Open Air Museum, do a tasting at Kocabag Winery, don't miss a visit to Sunset Point, and explore the world behind art at Guray Museum.
