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.
Do your shopping at Kapali Carsi and Kanyon Shopping Center. The adventure continues: take an in-depth tour of Hagia Sophia Museum / Church (Ayasofya), explore the world behind art at Kariye Museum (The Chora Church), look for gifts at Mısır Çarşısı, and take in panoramic vistas at Galata Tower.

To find where to stay, photos, ratings, and tourist information, you can read our Istanbul trip maker site .
