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 landmark architecture of Hagia Sophia Museum / Church (Ayasofya), steep yourself in history at Basilica Cistern, browse the eclectic array of goods at Grand Bazaar (Kapali Carsi), and wander the streets of Ortakoy.
