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.
You'll get in some beach time at Dalia Beach and Burc Beach. Get outdoors at Polonezkoy Tabiat Parki and Florya Sahil Parkı. Spend the 29th (Mon) floating through the air with a balloon tour. The adventure continues: browse the eclectic array of goods at Kapali Carsi, take a memorable tour with Bosphorus Tours Istanbul, contemplate the waterfront views at Golden Horn, and take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Selale Parkuru.
