    Itinerary
    This is a typical itinerary for this product

    Stop At: Sheki Khan's Palace, Sheki 0055 Azerbaijan

    The Palace of Shaki Khans in Shaki, Azerbaijan was a summer residence of Shaki Khans. It features decorative tiles, fountains and several stained-glass windows. The exterior is decorated with dark blue, turquoise and ochre tiles in geometric patterns and the murals were coloured with tempera.

    Duration: 1 hour

    Stop At: Sheki Fortress, Ahundova Av. 205, Sheki 5500 Azerbaijan

    The Sheki khan Hadzhi Chelebi (who reigned from 1743 to 1755) built a fortified wall in the northeast of the city for defense. The overall length is about 1,300 m (4,265 ft), and it is 8 m (26 ft) tall at the southern end and 4 m (13 ft) tall at the northern end, with the thickness averaging over 2 meters (6.5 ft). There are 21 towers along the length of the wall, and the north and south, the wall is enclosed by arch gates.

    Duration: 1 hour

    Stop At: Church of Kish, Sheki Azerbaijan

    Located approximately 5km north of Sheki, and with a population of only 6,244, the tiny village of Kish is a shadow of it's once "mighty" glory. Walking the quiet cobble-stoned streets, you'd never guess that Kish's story is one of an ancient history and of "great" regional importance.

    Duration: 1 hour
