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. Do some cultural sightseeing at Hagia Sophia Museum and Topkapi Palace. Step out of Istanbul to go to Yalova and see Erikli Waterfall, which is approximately 1h 25 min away. Next up on the itinerary: appreciate the extensive heritage of Sultanahmet District, hunt for treasures at Kapali Carsi, take in the spiritual surroundings of Sultan Ahmed Mosque, and enjoy the sand and surf at Dalia Beach.
