The ferry trip to the nearby city of Yalova is followed by a 45-minute drive to Bursa.

Afterwards, head to Bursa’s cable car and hop aboard for a climb to the peak of Mt Olympos. Enjoy the great view of the city. In the unlikely event the cable car is not operating, walk with your guide to a similar overlook near an old plane tree.
Settled on the northwestern slopes of Mount Uludağ in the southern Marmara Region, Bursa is frequently cited as "Green Bursa", in a reference to the parks and gardens located across its urban tissue, as well as to the vast forests in rich variety that extend in its surroundings.
Thus, Bursa has traditionally been a pole of attraction, and was a major center for refugees from various ethnic backgrounds; and it holds an immaculate heritage of Ottoman civil architecture.
