Istanbul

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.
For shopping fun, head to Kapali Carsi or Istiklal Street. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Food Tours and Iznik. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Istanbul: Yalova (Cevdet Aydin Parki, Termal Cinarl Hiyaben Yolu, & more), Izmit (Gayret Gemi Museum, Hizir Reis Denizalti Muzesi, & more) and Ataturk Kosku (in Termal). Next up on the itinerary: take an in-depth tour of Hagia Sophia Museum / Church (Ayasofya), explore the ancient world of Basilica Cistern, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Sultan Ahmed Mosque, and wander the streets of Sultanahmet District.
