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 some historical perspective at Hagia Sophia Museum and Yeni Camii. Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Sultan Ahmed Mosque and Topkapi Palace. Next up on the itinerary: look for gifts at Jennifer's Hamam, explore the world behind art at Chora Museum, take an in-depth tour of Istanbul Archaeological Museum, and hunt for treasures at Kapali Carsi.
