A physical and cultural bridge between Europe and Asia, the transcontinental city of Istanbul serves as a living reminder of the Roman, Byzantine, and Ottoman empires.
Visiting Balloon Rides and Buyukada Tabiat Parki will get you outdoors. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Istanbul Arkeoloji Muzesi and Ulu Cami. Explore Istanbul's surroundings by going to Aya Yorgi Church (in Buyukada), Green Tomb (in Bursa) and Asaf Family Beach (in Adalar). Next up on the itinerary: take an in-depth tour of Hagia Sophia Museum / Church (Ayasofya), take in the spiritual surroundings of Yeni Camii, browse the eclectic array of goods at Kapali Carsi, and steep yourself in history at Basilica Cistern.
