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.
Step out of the city life by going to Bentler Tabiat Parki and Aqua Beach. For shopping fun, head to Kapali Carsi or Istiklal Street. There's much more to do: take in the spiritual surroundings of Sultan Ahmed Mosque, wander the streets of Sultanahmet District, take an in-depth tour of Topkapi Palace, and delve into the distant past at Basilica Cistern.
