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.
Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Hagia Sophia Museum / Church (Ayasofya) and Sultan Ahmed Mosque. Popular historic sites such as Basilica Cistern and Koza Hani are in your itinerary. Change things up with these side-trips from Istanbul: Basiskele (Uzuntarla Tabiat Parki & Eriklitepe Tabiat Parki), Asaf Family Beach (in Adalar) and Ulu Cami (in Bursa). Spend the 30th (Thu) exploring nature at Sakarya Il Ormani Tabiat Parki.
