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 Bosphorus Strait and Silivri Sahili. Do some cultural sightseeing at Sultanahmet District and Basilica Cistern. Spend the 1st (Sat) exploring nature at Irmak Tabiat Parki. The adventure continues: take in the spiritual surroundings of Sultan Ahmed Mosque, enjoy breathtaking views from Galata Tower, admire the masterpieces at Istanbul Modern Museum, and hunt for treasures at Kapali Carsi.
