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 inner history buff will appreciate Galata Tower and Historic Areas of Istanbul. Museum-lovers will appreciate Kariye Museum (The Chora Church) and Istanbul Modern Museum. Spend the 27th (Wed) wandering around Taksim Square. The adventure continues: get engrossed in the history at Topkapi Palace, enjoy the sand and surf at Florya Sahil Parkı, look for gifts at Jennifer's Hamam, and admire the landmark architecture of Hagia Sophia Museum / Church (Ayasofya).
