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.
Get outdoors at Golden Horn and Balloon Rides. For shopping fun, head to Kapali Carsi or Dolmabahce Sanat Galerisi. Next up on the itinerary: take an in-depth tour of Hagia Sophia Museum / Church (Ayasofya), delve into the distant past at Basilica Cistern, take in panoramic vistas at Galata Tower, and explore the world behind art at Kariye Museum (The Chora Church).
