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.
Attractions like Hagia Sophia Museum / Church (Ayasofya) and Suleymaniye Cami make great kid-friendly stops. The adventure continues: admire the landmark architecture of Basilica Cistern, take a stroll through Sultanahmet District, browse the eclectic array of goods at Grand Bazaar (Kapali Carsi), and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Sultan Ahmed Mosque.
