Istanbul

— 6 nights

Queen of Cities

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.
Take a break from the city and head to Bosphorus Strait and Erikli Waterfall. Appreciate the collections at Topkapi Palace and Rumeli Fortress. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Istanbul: Delmece Yaylasi (in Cinarcik) and Buyukada Tabiat Parki (in Buyukada). There's much more to do: hunt for treasures at Kapali Carsi, admire the masterpieces at Chora Museum, take an in-depth tour of Galata Tower, and admire the striking features of Hagia Sophia.

Rich in culture and customs and brimming with hospitality, natural beauty, and historical heritage, Turkey serves as a crossroads between Asia and Europe. The landmass known as Anatolia on which Turkey thrives has been home to numerous civilizations and their faiths and cultures, as attested by the 13 World Heritage Sites and countless religious sites you'll find here. Relive the ancient world through the ruins, customs, and traditions that are among the nation's most precious heritages. Adventure-seekers have plenty do to here, including mountain climbing, scuba diving, rafting, and skiing. A holiday to Turkey is incomplete without a cup of Turkish coffee, the pinnacle of Turkish cuisine inscribed on the Intangible Cultural Heritage List.
