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 some cultural sightseeing at Ortakoy and Sultan Ahmed Mosque. Let the collections at Kariye Museum (The Chora Church) and Istanbul Modern Museum capture your imagination. Next up on the itinerary: explore the ancient world of Basilica Cistern, browse the eclectic array of goods at Grand Bazaar (Kapali Carsi), take in the spiritual surroundings of Suleymaniye Cami , and wander the streets of Taksim Square.
