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.
Spend the 8th (Thu) floating through the air with a balloon tour. Spend the 11th (Sun) exploring nature at Bentler Tabiat Parki. The adventure continues: get engrossed in the history at Hagia Sophia Museum / Church (Ayasofya), take a stroll through Sultanahmet District, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Suleymaniye Cami , and explore the world behind art at Kariye Museum (The Chora Church).
