Often described as one of the most spectacular cities on planet earth, Istanbul is a city like none other. With has one foot in Europe and one foot in Asia, the city showcases the best of the Byzantine & Ottoman Empires and is one of the world’s oldest civilisations.
From the iconic Hagia Sophia to the Blue Mosque and Basilica Cistern, you’ll see some of the world’s most incredible architecture on an Istanbul city break. Don’t miss the Bosphorus Palace, the Grand Bazaar market and the Topkapi palace, and make sure to take a walking tour of the old town.
Many people choose to take taxis between the various attractions, but if you’re happy to walk a little, you can avoid the morning and afternoon traffic and take public transport. Metro, tram, funiculars and trains are manned by security and are a much cheaper alternative.
