Sitting on the Bosphorus, the strait of water that divides the continents of Europe and Asia, Istanbul is the only city in the world to span two continents. Its illustrious past leaves a rich legacy of churches, mosques, palaces and museums, complemented by the behemoth Grand Bazaar, aromatic Egyptian Spice Market and colourful street life. Take in the highlights of Istanbul for yourself on a guided day tour or opt for independent exploration with a Hop-On Hop-Off bus pass. After dark discover the city’s culinary scene on a food tour or witness a mesmerising performance of the Whirling Dervishes.
