Discover the secrets of Trabzon with a knowledgeable local guide.
Inside the city walls is the old center of Trabzon resembling to a table that was 'Trapezus' in Greek language, the oldest name of Trabzon. The table like old center is between two little valleys passed by old bridges.

We spent a fabulous day with Arif. He is very knowledgeable and obviously enjoyed showing us the sights. We especially enjoyed the Hagia Sophia with its frescoes. He showed us a special school of sorts which trains women in marketable skills in artistic projects. We are enjoying our purchases from there. We really enjoyed the anchovy lunch, a surprising taste treat!
