Tour Content

Our guide and driver will meet you at your hotel in Antalya at 07:30am.

Then, we will drive another 3 hours with breaks to get to Mevlana Museum. Mausoleum of Rumi (in Turkish ‘Mevlana Müzesi’),  is a must see destination in Konya and there is the tomb of the famous mystic/sufi/thinker Rumi (known shortly as Mevlana in Turkish, or with the full name Mawlana Jalal ad-Din Muhammad Balkhi-Rumi in English literature), as well as the neighboring museum that displays relics of his life and his time. The items on display in the museum range from old manuscripts, hand written copies of the Koran, musical instruments used at Rumi’s time, as well as numerous art works dating from the Seljuk era.

After visiting the museum, you will have your lunch in a local restaurant.

In the afternoon, we will visit Alaeddin Mosque. This mosque is one of the most interesting examples of Turkish Architecture with wooden columns that carry the entire building. A graveyard for the Sultans is located in the courtyard of this mosque. Finally, we will visit Ince Minareli Medrese (theological school) with its amazing portal gate which is one of the best examples in Turkey. The tour will end around 7:30pm – 8:00pm and we will drop you off to your hotel.
