Istanbul

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.
Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Grand Bazaar (Kapali Carsi) and Istiklal Street. Sultanahmet District and Golden Horn will appeal to history buffs. There's still lots to do: kick back and relax at Florya Sahil Parkı, admire the masterpieces at Kariye Museum (The Chora Church), take an in-depth tour of Topkapi Palace, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Solar Plajı.
