" Trabzon tour including Monastery of Sumela " - Our Trabzon tour was very well organised and our guide was very informative, in fact I don't think he stopped talking all the way through the trip. He managed to bring the historic locations to life for us and we so enjoyed his comentary. To visit the Monastery of Sumela was an amazing experience and I would have no hesitation in reccomending this tour and the Celsus Travel to any traveller. Julie N - Reviewed August 23, 2015

Trabzon is a port city on the Black Sea with a long history and cultural legacy. In northeastern Turkey, it has served as a trading center between Europe and southern and eastern Asia on what is commonly known as the Silk Road. During Greece's Classical era (600-400 BC) an enclave of Greek traders was established and from then until the Ottomans took the city, Greek and Byzantine Greek culture dominated. It was the capital of the Trebizond Empire from 1204 to 1461, when the Ottomans captured the city. In fact, there are still many people of Greek heritage and language in the area. The city's most popular attractions are the ruins of the Trabzon Fortress, Hagia Sophia built during the late Byzantine period, and Ataturk's seaside villa. South of the city is one of the most dramatic of all Orthodox Monasteries, Sumela Monastery, with a beautiful Uzungol, known for its scenic surroundings and foggy atmosphere.
