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.
Istanbul is known for historic sites, museums, shopping, nature, and nightlife. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: get engrossed in the history at Hagia Sophia Museum / Church (Ayasofya), take in the spiritual surroundings of Sultan Ahmed Mosque, browse the eclectic array of goods at Kapali Carsi, and take a stroll through Ortakoy.

To find ratings, traveler tips, and other tourist information, read our Istanbul trip planner.
