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.
Your day-by-day itinerary now includes Kapali Carsi, Mosaic Museum, Mimar Sinan Mosque, and other attractions you added. Get some historical perspective at Hagia Sophia Museum / Church (Ayasofya) and Sultanahmet District. Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Sultan Ahmed Mosque and Kariye Museum (The Chora Church). There's still lots to do: steep yourself in history at Basilica Cistern, take a stroll through Beyoglu, enjoy breathtaking views from Galata Tower, and admire the landmark architecture of Yeni Camii.
