About Istanbul

Istanbul is tremendously rich in history as well as culture, and can keep any traveler happily occupied. Very much like Rome, you will find layers of history unfold before you and breathtaking architecture around every corner. It is simply a must to explore the mosques and bazaars, and all their respective surrounding areas. Kick your trip off by exploring the awe-inspiring Sultan Ahmet Camii (Blue Mosque), the world renown Hagia Sophia and The Grand Bazar where you’ll be sure to partake in a good natured haggle as you stroll by its thousands of shops. Other points of interest include, but are not limited to: Süleymaniye Mosque, Topkapi Palace, Kariye Museum, Basilica Cistern, and the Galata Bridge. Travel to where continents collide and East meets West!
