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.
Take a break from the city and head to Balloon Rides and Halic. Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Hagia Sophia Museum / Church (Ayasofya) and Sultan Ahmed Mosque. Change things up with a short trip to Ulu Cami in Bursa (about 1h 40 min away).
