City Trip to Istanbul
A city break in Istanbul means immersing yourself in a different culture. Sip çay tea and haggle in the bazaar, observe the hustle and bustle of the city over a shisha or let the day draw to a relaxing close in the hammam. Istanbul has something for everyone.
There is so much to discover and experience away from the famous sights in the metropolis on the Bosphorus where Asia and Europe meet. A river cruise on the Bosphorus comes highly recommended and is a wonderful opportunity to see the city from a different perspective.Almost the entire Sultanahmet district is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site. And for good reason: the world-famous sights of the Hagia Sophia, the Sultan Ahmed Mosque (“Blue Mosque”) and the Topkapi Palace are just a few minutes away. A visit to these landmarks is a must-do during your city break to Istanbul.
Another highlight during your city break in Istanbul is a visit to the Grand Bazaar. This huge covered market has been home to several thousand shops for centuries. From spices to carpets to jewellery – you can bargain and buy everything you can dream of here. And a whole lot more.
The city also offers a wealth of diversity when it comes culinary delights. Whether you prefer modern gourmet establishments or traditional, family-run restaurants, there are plenty of choices to suit all tastes. There are also numerous rooftop bars dotted throughout the city.
