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.
Dolmabahce Palace has been added to your itinerary. Visit Hagia Sophia Museum / Church (Ayasofya) and Sultanahmet District for their historical value. Do some cultural sightseeing at Sultan Ahmed Mosque and Topkapi Palace. It doesn't end there: contemplate the waterfront views at Bosphorus Strait and get a taste of the local shopping with Istiklal Street.
