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 Museum / Church (Ayasofya) and Kariye Museum (The Chora Church) will appeal to museum buffs. Do some cultural sightseeing at Ortakoy and Basilica Cistern. Spend the 22nd (Thu) wandering around Taksim Square. The adventure continues: take an in-depth tour of Topkapi Palace, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Sultan Ahmed Mosque, steep yourself in history at Historic Areas of Istanbul, and wander the streets of Kucuk Pazar.
