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.
Shop till you drop at Kapali Carsi and Dolmabahce Sanat Galerisi. Get some cultural insight at Hagia Sophia Museum / Church (Ayasofya) and Basilica Cistern. There's much more to do: appreciate the extensive heritage of Sultanahmet District, admire the masterpieces at Kariye Museum (The Chora Church), take a stroll through Istiklal Street, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Sultan Ahmed Mosque.
