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.
Shop till you drop at Grand Bazaar (Kapali Carsi) and Adnan and Hasan Carpet and Kilim Store. Bring the kids along to Hagia Sophia Museum / Church (Ayasofya) and Dolmabahce Palace. And it doesn't end there: steep yourself in history at Basilica Cistern, admire the landmark architecture of Suleymaniye Cami , admire the masterpieces at Istanbul Modern Museum, and enjoy breathtaking views from Galata Tower.
