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.
Museum-lovers will appreciate Topkapi Palace and Rumeli Fortress. Head to Kapali Carsi and Tribal Art Home Fusion Glass Artfor plenty of shopping. Venture out of the city with trips to Su Dusen Selalesi (in Termal), Delmece Yaylasi (in Cinarcik) and Termal Cinarl Hiyaben Yolu (in Yalova). There's still lots to do: contemplate the waterfront views at Bosphorus Strait, explore the world behind art at Chora Museum, wander the streets of Istiklal Caddesi, and visit Taksim Square.
