Your Destination —
Situated on the narrow strait between the Black Sea and the Marmara Sea, Istanbul has attracted many a marauding army in its time and has been a bridge between Asia and Europe both physically and culturally for centuries. As the final stage on the legendary Silk Route, the cultural diversity of Istanbul is tangible to this day.
Visit the UNESCO World Heritage Site that is Istanbul’s Old City and marvel over some of its most incredible structures, including the Blue Mosque, or Sultan Ahmed Mosque, named because of the blue tiles that dominate the interior walls. Discover the Topkapi Palace, the largest and oldest palace in the world and see where wicked sultans, beautiful concubines, ambitious courtiers and scheming eunuchs lived and worked between the 15th and 19th centuries. Or head to the bustling Istiklal Street and choose from over 1.4km of shops, boutiques, restaurants, cafes, bookstores and chocolate shops, amongst others, to entertain you.
Watch the captivating layers of history unfold before you in the vibrant city of Istanbul and find yourself enamoured with its vivid culture.
