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.
Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Istiklal Street and Constantine Art Gallery. Get some historical perspective at Hagia Sophia Museum / Church (Ayasofya) and Sultanahmet District. Go for a jaunt from Istanbul to Basiskele to see Uzuntarla Tabiat Parki about 1h 55 min away. There's still lots to do: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Sultan Ahmed Mosque, look for all kinds of wild species at Bentler Tabiat Parki, view the masterpieces at Ikonium Studio, and steep yourself in history at Cafer Ağa Medresesi.
