Sumela Monastery, Atatürk Pavillion, Hagia Sophia Museum
This tour offers the most popular tourist attractions in Trabzon in one day. We start our tour early in the morning and head to Sumela Monastery which is about 40kms from the city center. In and around the monastery you will enjoy the nature and rich history.
Then we will go back to the city to visit the magnificent Trabzon Hagia Sophia. After Hagia Sophia we'll have lunch in the small town called Akçaabat to have their famous meatballs (highly recommended) or fish or something else considering your dietary needs. After this nice lunch break we'll go to Atatürk Pavillion to learn more about the history and enjoy some nice scenery.
And finally, we will drive in the city center and go up to the city hill for a final view to Trabzon and have Turkish tea.
