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.
Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Sultan Ahmed Mosque and Suleymaniye Cami . Kids will appreciate attractions like Basilica Cistern and Eyup Sultan Mosque. Explore Istanbul's surroundings by going to Bursa (Green Tomb & Ulu Cami), Aya Yorgi Church (in Buyukada) and Uzuntarla Tabiat Parki (in Basiskele). There's lots more to do: get engrossed in the history at Istanbul Arkeoloji Muzesi, wander the streets of Sultanahmet District, kick back and relax at Dalia Beach, and explore the world behind art at Kariye Museum (The Chora Church).
