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.
Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Hagia Sophia and Sultan Ahmed Mosque. Popular historic sites such as Sultanahmet District and Suleymaniye Cami are in your itinerary. Change things up with a short trip to Erikli Waterfall in Yalova (about 1h 25 min away). There's still lots to do: get engrossed in the history at Topkapi Palace, admire the masterpieces at Chora Museum, tour the pleasant surroundings at Solar Plajı, and enjoy the sand and surf at Suma Beach.
