Places of interest include: the City Walls, of which one gate remains to-day; the peninsula at the end of the bay with its castle and swimming beaches; several aqua parks with wave-pools and white-water slides; Ladies Beach, once segregated but now open to all; and Dilek Peninsula National Park.

It lies on an isthmus linking the Boztepe Peninsula to the mainland and is shut off from the Anatolian Plateau to the south by high, forest-clad mountains. The town's citadel and the foundations of the Temple of Serapis, now found in the grounds of the archaeological museum, suggest that the city may have been founded in the 7th century BC. Certainly, the beautiful golden icons on display at the museum are well worth a visit. Read more about Sinop, Turkey

    Azamara Pursuit Overview

    Azamara Pursuit

    5
    (from 1 verified customers)

    The Azamara fleet constitutes three of eight identical R-class ships built around 2000. All eight vessels are now owned by three luxury cruise lines, which underlines their popularity. The vessel looks extra sparkling following its 2018 move to the Azamara fleet. The ship is able to access ports not visited by larger vessels. Carrying just 704 passengers, its elegant public spaces are uncrowded. And her name “Pursuit”? Well, it’s a synonym for “Journey” and “Quest”, her identical sister ships.
