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 museums, historic sites, shopping, nature, and nightlife. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: get engrossed in the history at Hagia Sophia Museum / Church (Ayasofya), admire the masterpieces at Kariye Museum (The Chora Church), contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Sultan Ahmed Mosque, and steep yourself in history at Galata Tower.
