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.
Get in touch with nature at Burc Beach and Great Camlica Estate Park. Basilica Cistern and Rumeli Fortress will appeal to history buffs. Spend the 19th (Mon) wandering around Taksim Square. And it doesn't end there: take a stroll through Ortakoy, enjoy breathtaking views from Galata Tower, get to know the fascinating history of Sultanahmet District, and admire the landmark architecture of Hagia Sophia Museum / Church (Ayasofya).
