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 historic sites, museums, shopping, nature, and nightlife. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: explore the galleries of Hagia Sophia Museum / Church (Ayasofya), contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Sultan Ahmed Mosque, take an in-depth tour of Topkapi Palace, and explore the world behind art at Kariye Museum (The Chora Church).
