Istanbul

— 16 nights

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.
Head to Arasta Bazaar and Istiklal Caddesifor plenty of shopping. Get some cultural insight at Ortakoy and Aya Yorgi Church. Change things up with these side-trips from Istanbul: Nakibey Plaj (in Buyukada), Ulu Cami (in Bursa) and Altinkemer Local Beach (in Karamursel). And it doesn't end there: look for gifts at Mısır Çarşısı, stop by Beyoglu, take a stroll through Eminonu Square, and see the interesting displays at Rahmi M. Koc Museum.
