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.
Topkapi Palace and Sultan Ahmed Mosque are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Popular historic sites such as Basilica Cistern and Historic Areas of Istanbul are in your itinerary. On the 28th (Mon), maximize a day of sightseeing with Private Istanbul Walking Tours. The adventure continues: admire the landmark architecture of Hagia Sophia Museum / Church (Ayasofya), wander the streets of Ortakoy, get to know the fascinating history of Sultanahmet District, and explore the world behind art at Kariye Museum (The Chora Church).
