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.
Head to Grand Bazaar (Kapali Carsi) and Adnan and Hasan Carpet and Kilim Storefor plenty of shopping. Take a break from the city and head to Golden Horn and Luxury Istanbul Day Tours. There's lots more to do: get engrossed in the history at Hagia Sophia Museum / Church (Ayasofya), wander the streets of Sultanahmet District, admire the masterpieces at Istanbul Modern Museum, and delve into the distant past at Basilica Cistern.
