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.
Get some historical perspective at Basilica Cistern and Golden Horn. Visiting Bosphorus Strait and Balloon Rides will get you outdoors. Spend the 25th (Thu) exploring nature at Dilburnu Tabiat Parki. Spend the 26th (Fri) exploring nature at Bentler Tabiat Parki. Next up on the itinerary: browse the eclectic array of goods at Kapali Carsi, look for all kinds of wild species at Irmak Tabiat Parki, contemplate the waterfront views at Selale Parkuru, and get engrossed in the history at Hagia Sophia Museum / Church (Ayasofya).
