Dikili is a coastal town in Turkey that is a fantastic site for both natural and historic tourism. The region is a popular resort spot, known for its golden beaches and therapeutic springs.

Be sure to visit the Merkez Mosque, which dates from 1789 and is a wooden structure built entirely without nails. The charming cobblestoned town center has a variety of restaurants and shops.

For those with a longer stay, travel the 30 minutes to Pergamum (also spelled Pergamon), a remarkable Greek and Roman historical site. Pergamum was the site of the invention of parchment, and its library contained 200,000 volumes (second only to the library of Alexandria, Egypt).
