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.
Shop till you drop at Dolmabahce Sanat Galerisi and Cafer Ağa Medresesi. Step out of the city life by going to Bentler Tabiat Parki and Selale Parkuru. There's still lots to do: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Hagia Sophia Museum / Church (Ayasofya), shop like a local with Istiklal Street, take an in-depth tour of Topkapi Palace, and take in the exciting artwork at Constantine Art Gallery.

To find traveler tips, topicsMoreInfo.option.ratings, other places to visit, and other tourist information, you can read our Istanbul travel itinerary planner.
