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.
You'll visit kid-friendly attractions like Hagia Sophia and Suleymaniye Cami . Next up on the itinerary: take an in-depth tour of Topkapi Palace, browse the exhibits of Galata Tower, admire the masterpieces at Chora Museum, and hunt for treasures at Kapali Carsi.

A popular spa since the second century BCE, the modern city of Pamukkale continues to draw worldwide attention with its hot springs and travertines--naturally formed calcite bathing pools.
On the 13th (Thu), soar above the sights with a balloon tour and then take in the natural beauty of Pamukkale Thermal Pools. On your second day here, explore the fascinating underground world of Kaklik Cave, explore the different monuments and memorials at Anatolia Cemetery, and then explore the ancient world of Hierapolis.
