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.
You've now added Taksim Square to your itinerary. Head to Jennifer's Hamam and Kapali Carsifor some retail therapy. Get a sense of the local culture at Yeni Camii and Sultanahmet District. Change things up with a short trip to Sardala Koyu in Kandira (about 1h 55 min away). Spend the 9th (Fri) floating through the air with a balloon tour. And it doesn't end there: delve into the distant past at Basilica Cistern, wander the streets of Eminonu Square, contemplate the waterfront views at Halic, and explore the world behind art at Kariye Museum (The Chora Church).

To find where to stay, ratings, traveler tips, and tourist information, go to the Istanbul trip itinerary maker tool .

Keep things going the next day: admire the striking features of Yivli Minaret Mosque, then kick back and relax at Cirali Plaji, and then take in the dramatic scenery at Duden Waterfalls.
