Duration: 03 nights 04 days

Turkey Delight

More than ottoman minarets and fascinating bazaars, Turkey’s cultural capital is also fashionable and progressive. Spanning both Asia and Europe and divided by the Bosphorus, Istanbul is a enticing mix of ancient and modern, of conservative and secular. The massive complex of Hagia Sophia and luxurious Topkapi Palace dominate the old city Sultanahmet, but over in Karakoy, in a converted warehouse, the Istanbul Museum of Modern Art embraces the future.
