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.

Change things up with these side-trips from Istanbul: Aya Yorgi Church (in Buyukada) and Green Tomb (in Bursa). Next up on the itinerary: take an in-depth tour of Topkapi Palace, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Suleymaniye Cami , explore the world behind art at Istanbul Modern, and contemplate the long history of Rumeli Fortress.
