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.
Appreciate the collections at Topkapi Palace and Hagia Sophia Museum / Church (Ayasofya). Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Erikli Waterfall and Sultanahmet Square. Change things up with these side-trips from Istanbul: Termal Cinarl Hiyaben Yolu (in Yalova), Faruk YalcIn Hayvanat Bahcesi ve Botanik ParkI (in Tuzla District) and Delmece Yaylasi (in Cinarcik). Spend the 1st (Fri) exploring nature at Irmak Tabiat Parki. Spend the 28th (Thu) exploring nature at Bentler Tabiat Parki. Next up on the itinerary: get to know the fascinating history of Sultanahmet District, hunt for treasures at Kapali Carsi, trek along Ibb Halic Nedim Parki, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Sultan Ahmed Mosque.
