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.
Visiting Bosphorus Strait and Nature & Wildlife Tours will get you outdoors. Do your shopping at Kapali Carsi and Istiklal Caddesi. Spend the 3rd (Sun) exploring nature at Bentler Tabiat Parki. There's still lots to do: wander the streets of Ortakoy, admire the masterpieces at Chora Museum, discover the deep blue sea with Deepist Diving & Travel, and get engrossed in the history at Topkapi Palace.
