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.
Start off your visit on the 6th (Mon): admire the masterpieces at Kariye Museum (The Chora Church), take an in-depth tour of Topkapi Palace, then take in the spiritual surroundings of Suleymaniye Cami , and finally take a stroll through Ortakoy. On the next day, take a stroll through Sultanahmet District, steep yourself in history at Basilica Cistern, take an in-depth tour of Hagia Sophia Museum / Church (Ayasofya), then take in the spiritual surroundings of Sultan Ahmed Mosque, and finally soak in style at Turkish baths.
