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.
Do your shopping at Kapali Carsi and Istiklal Street. You'll enjoy a bit of beach vacationing at Dalia Beach and Saklikoy. Spend the 26th (Wed) exploring nature at Dilburnu Tabiat Parki. Spend the 27th (Thu) exploring nature at Bentler Tabiat Parki. There's still lots to do: get engrossed in the history at Hagia Sophia Museum / Church (Ayasofya), take in the spiritual surroundings of Sultan Ahmed Mosque, identify plant and animal life at Selale Parkuru, and kick back and relax at Burc Beach.
