Istanbul

— 4 nights

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 Eyüp Sultan Mosque and Suma Beach. Little Hagia Sophia and Historic Areas of Istanbul will appeal to history buffs. Go for a jaunt from Istanbul to Yalova to see Erikli Waterfall about 1h 25 min away. There's still lots to do: kick back and relax at Solar Plajı, look for gifts at Mısır Çarşısı, pause for some serene contemplation at Santa Maria Draperis Church, and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Rustem Pasha Mosque.
