Istanbul

— 5 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.
Your inner history buff will appreciate Hagia Sophia and Historic Areas of Istanbul. Take a break from the city and head to Bosphorus Strait and Deepist Diving & Travel. Explore Istanbul's surroundings by going to Buyukada Tabiat Parki (in Buyukada) and Delmece Yaylasi (in Cinarcik). And it doesn't end there: get engrossed in the history at Chora Museum, browse the exhibits of Galata Tower, steep yourself in history at Rumeli Fortress, and wander the streets of Istiklal Caddesi.

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.
