The scenic beauty of Turkey is well known to those who traveled there on our August 1999 total solar eclipse tour. The friendly Turkish people, stunning scenery, great food, and incredibly rich history make Turkey an “A-list” destination for any traveler.

We have secured excellent oceanfront accommodations on the centerline, just outside the ancient Roman city of Side (SEE-deh). Here we will witness the Moon completely covering the Sun for 3 minutes 45 seconds. Additionally, we have reserved an alternate viewing site amid magnificent Roman ruins just 4 kilometers from our hotel, a location that offers a fraction of a second less totality. We will preview our Side location the day before the eclipse; the choice will be yours!
