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.
Hagia Sophia Museum / Church (Ayasofya) and Koza Hani will appeal to history buffs. Topkapi Palace and Istanbul Arkeoloji Muzesi will appeal to museum buffs. Get out of town with these interesting Istanbul side-trips: Uzuntarla Tabiat Parki (in Basiskele) and Ulu Cami (in Bursa). There's much more to do: admire the striking features of Basilica Cistern, explore the activities along Halic, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Sultan Ahmed Mosque, and appreciate the extensive heritage of Sultanahmet District.
