Bursa

— 1 night
The first Ottoman capital and a World Heritage Site, Bursa is known as "The Royal Springs" for its famous hot mineral waters--though it offers much more than your typical spa destination.
Kick off your visit on the 16th (Thu): contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Isabey CAMii, then browse the eclectic array of goods at Koza Hani, and then contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Ulu Cami.

Plan a trip to Bursa easily and quickly by telling Inspirock to suggest an itinerary.

Queen of Cities

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.
Museum-lovers will get to explore Topkapi Palace and Dolmabahce Sanat Galerisi. Your itinerary includes some good beach time at Buyukcekmece Sahili and Aqua Beach. There's still lots to do: take in the spiritual surroundings of Sultan Ahmed Mosque, stop by Ortakoy, take a stroll through Taksim Square, and admire the masterpieces at Chora Museum.
