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.
Popular historic sites such as Hagia Sophia Museum / Church (Ayasofya) and Basilica Cistern are in your itinerary. You'll explore and learn at Topkapi Palace and Istanbul Modern. Venture out of the city with trips to Sapanca Lake (in Sapanca), Bursa (Ulu Cami & Green Tomb) and Aya Yorgi Church (in Buyukada). Spend the 11th (Sat) exploring nature at Uzuntarla Tabiat Parki. There's lots more to do: take in the spiritual surroundings of Sultan Ahmed Mosque, take an in-depth tour of Istanbul Arkeoloji Muzesi, examine the collection at Rahmi M. Koc Museum, and steep yourself in history at Galata Tower.
