Istanbul

— 6 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.
Let the collections at Topkapi Palace and Galata Tower capture your imagination. Kids will enjoy Hagia Sophia Mosque and Basilica Cistern. There's lots more to do: take in the spiritual surroundings of Sultan Ahmed Mosque, admire the landmark architecture of Serefiye Sarnici, steep yourself in history at Historic Areas of Istanbul, and examine the collection at Sakip Sabanci Museum.
