Kick off your visit on the 15th (Mon): buy something for everyone on your list at The Avenues, then shop like a local with Souk Al-Mubarakiya, and then take in the spiritual surroundings of Grand Mosque.

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 Kapali Carsi and Egyptian Bazaarfor plenty of shopping. Get some historical perspective at Basilica Cistern and Hagia Sophia Museum / Church (Ayasofya). There's still lots to do: get engrossed in the history at Topkapi Palace, enjoy breathtaking views from Galata Tower, examine the collection at Rahmi M. Koc Museum, and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Sultan Ahmed Mosque.

Ask Inspirock to suggest an itinerary and make planning a trip to Istanbul fast, fun, and easy.
