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.
Istanbul is known for sightseeing, museums, religious sites, shopping, and historic sites. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: admire the striking features of Hagia Sophia Museum / Church (Ayasofya), admire the masterpieces at Istanbul Modern Museum, get engrossed in the history at Kariye Museum (The Chora Church), and hunt for treasures at Grand Bazaar (Kapali Carsi).
