A city full of culture and colour, Istanbul is the most populous city in Turkey and treats its tourists to a step back into the history books with its spectacular historical monuments and diverse culture. Explore the city and its immense history – dabble in the days of the Ottoman Empire, imagine life as a Sultan whilst taking a walk through the spectacular castles and palaces, explore the city’s plentiful mosques or else take a romantic boat trip down the river Bosphorus. However, you like to pass your time, the vibrant city of Istanbul will have something for you to feast your senses upon.
With western culture collaborating with the east, Istanbul is rich in colour, fragrances and diversity. On the contrary, if you want to combine the excitement of a culture-rich city with a touch of relaxation, then a holiday in Istanbul maybe everything you’ve ever dreamed of – and more. History buff? Delve deep into the architectural delight that is the city of Istanbul. Vibrant bazaars, spectacular palaces and mosques, Byzantine ruins and hummus filled with more than just water. Indulge yourself and book a Turkish bathing experience or else visit one of the city’s many beaches – quieter parts of the city give you the feeling of a beach holiday, all within the distance of the city itself.
Why choose between city or beach, relaxation or cultural indulgence when you can have all of the above in one trip?
