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.
Attractions like Hagia Sophia Museum / Church (Ayasofya) and Suleymaniye Cami make great kid-friendly stops. Next up on the itinerary: explore the ancient world of Basilica Cistern, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Sultan Ahmed Mosque, admire the striking features of Dolmabahce Palace, and admire the masterpieces at Istanbul Modern Museum.
