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.
Hagia Sophia and Galata Tower will appeal to history buffs. Sultan Ahmed Mosque and Chora Museum are good opportunities to explore the local culture. When in Istanbul, make a side trip to see Buyukada Tabiat Parki in Buyukada, approximately Buyukada away. There's much more to do: wander the streets of Ortakoy, admire the masterpieces at Istanbul Modern, browse the eclectic array of goods at Kapali Carsi, and contemplate the long history of Historic Areas of Istanbul.

For more things to do, photos, and tourist information, read our Istanbul trip planner.
