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.
Hagia Sophia Museum / Church (Ayasofya) and Suleymaniye Cami will appeal to history buffs. Shop till you drop at Kapali Carsi and Dolmabahce Sanat Galerisi. The adventure continues: take in the spiritual surroundings of Sultan Ahmed Mosque, take a stroll through Sultanahmet District, get a taste of the local shopping with Istiklal Street, and explore the striking landscape of Bentler Tabiat Parki.
