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 cultural insight at Hagia Sophia Museum and Sultan Ahmed Mosque. Take a break from the city and head to Halic and Erikli Waterfall. There's much more to do: get engrossed in the history at Topkapi Palace, steep yourself in history at Galata Tower, admire the masterpieces at Chora Museum, and take a stroll through Sultanahmet District.
