Queen of Cities

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 historic sites, museums, and shopping. Your trip includes some of its best attractions: admire the landmark architecture of Hagia Sophia Mosque, admire the masterpieces at Chora Museum, contemplate the waterfront views at Bosphorus Strait, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Sultan Ahmed Mosque.

Cairo, Egypt to Istanbul is an approximately 6-hour flight. You can also drive. You'll lose 1 hour traveling from Cairo to Istanbul due to the time zone difference.

Rich in culture and customs and brimming with hospitality, natural beauty, and historical heritage, Turkey serves as a crossroads between Asia and Europe. The landmass known as Anatolia on which Turkey thrives has been home to numerous civilizations and their faiths and cultures, as attested by the 13 World Heritage Sites and countless religious sites you'll find here. Relive the ancient world through the ruins, customs, and traditions that are among the nation's most precious heritages. Adventure-seekers have plenty do to here, including mountain climbing, scuba diving, rafting, and skiing. A holiday to Turkey is incomplete without a cup of Turkish coffee, the pinnacle of Turkish cuisine inscribed on the Intangible Cultural Heritage List.
