If you fancy exploring some of the world’s finest ancient wonders, spring or fall is the best time to go. April and early May sees Turkey decked out with a stunning display of wild flowers. From the beginning of May through the start of June the sea becomes swimmable before the summer heat scorches, while September through October is perfect for leisurely bathing. July and August remain to be the most popular months for the Blue Cruise, enabling those of us who await our kids’ school vacations.
