Istanbul, Turkey

— 15 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 Buyukada Tabiat Parki will get you outdoors. Visit Sultan Ahmed Mosque and Basilica Cistern for their historical value. Venture out of the city with trips to Su Dusen Selalesi (in Termal), Yalova (Termal Cinarl Hiyaben Yolu & Erikli Waterfall) and Delmece Yaylasi (in Cinarcik). Spend the 9th (Tue) exploring nature at Bentler Tabiat Parki. There's lots more to do: admire the striking features of Hagia Sophia Mosque, explore the galleries of Galata Tower, take an in-depth tour of Topkapi Palace, and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Rustem Pasha Mosque.

Use Inspirock's suggestions to plan your Istanbul trip and find the best activities and attractions for your vacation.

Tehran, Iran to Istanbul is an approximately 5.5-hour flight. You can also drive; or take a bus. The time zone changes from Iran Standard Time to Turkey Time, which is usually a -0.5 hour difference.

A beautiful and romantic city fit for any itinerary, Paris brims with historic associations and remains vastly influential in the realms of culture, art, fashion, food and design.

Venture out of the city with trips to Suresnes (Le Mont-Valerien French Memorial to Resistance Martyrs & Suresnes American Cemetery and Memorial), Airescapade77 (in Bagneaux sur Loing) and Grandes Cascades du Mont Dore (in Le Mont-Dore). There's much more to do: take in the architecture and atmosphere at Basilique du Sacre-Coeur de Montmartre, appreciate the history behind Arc de Triomphe, admire the masterpieces at Musee d'Orsay, and explore the landscape on two wheels at Voie verte du pays de Limours.
