Istanbul

Queen of Cities

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.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Chora Museum and Solar Plajı. Little Hagia Sophia and Rustem Pasha Mosque will appeal to history buffs. Go for a jaunt from Istanbul to Yalova to see Erikli Waterfall about 1h 25 min away. Next up on the itinerary: take an in-depth tour of Istanbul Archaeological Museum, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Santa Maria Draperis Church, admire the striking features of Eyüp Sultan Mosque, and contemplate the long history of Historic Areas of Istanbul.
