Istanbul

— 7 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.
Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Hagia Sophia and Sultan Ahmed Mosque. Visit Ulu Cami and Basilica Cistern for their historical value. Get out of town with these interesting Istanbul side-trips: Tozlu Cami (in Adapazari), Sakarya Il Ormani Tabiat Parki (in Sapanca) and Bursa (Isabey CAMii & Koza Hani). The adventure continues: take an in-depth tour of Topkapi Palace, contemplate the waterfront views at Halic, get to know the fascinating history of Pierre Loti Tepesi, and look for all kinds of wild species at Uzuntarla Tabiat Parki.
