Istanbul is one of the most ancient cities in the world, and the only city on the planet to be situated on two continents. With the grand Bosphorous River running through the city, this is an exciting and intriguing place to visit.
Explore the beautiful palaces, impressive mosques and maze like bazaars; and take a Bosphorous cruise and have lunch whilst looking at this impressive city from the river. At night, explore Istanbul’s old town and local restaurants - enjoy a traditional baklava with mint tea while you soak up the city atmosphere.
Highlights would be a visit to the stunning mosaiced church of Chora, a day trip to one of the Prince's Islands where donkey and carts are the only form of transport and a boat trip on the Bosphorus.
