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.
Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Hagia Sophia Museum / Church (Ayasofya) and Sultan Ahmed Mosque. Head to Kapali Carsi and Dolmabahce Sanat Galerisifor plenty of shopping. Step out of Istanbul with an excursion to Uzuntarla Tabiat Parki in Basiskele--about 1h 50 min away. There's lots more to do: kick back and relax at Aqua Beach, take an in-depth tour of Kariye Museum (The Chora Church), contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Suleymaniye Cami , and identify plant and animal life at Selale Parkuru.
