You should travel first class in Turkey. But first, lets book that way.

    Turkey is the European gateway to Asia, and probably one of the most exciting and romantic countries in the world. To get the most from your journey, we recommend you purchase a Balkan Pass, which also provides flexible travel in Greece, Bulgaria, Macedonia, and Romania. Don’t forget to make your reservations locally. (At this time, Rail Europe doesn’t offer point-to-point tickets for Turkey.)
