Dating back to the seventh millennium BC, Istanbul has a wealth of historical sites to explore, and an extraordinary cultural experience lies around every corner.
The city has a long history in sea trading as the final stage on the legendary Silk Routes that linked Asia and Europe, and was previously the capital of the Byzantine Empire. The city’s Bazaars are a treat for visitors, from the touristy Sultanahmet district to the more local ones, which can be found down hidden alleyways throughout the city. Visitors are left in awe by the stunning Imperial Ottoman architecture and the magnificently decorated imperial mosques that together form one of the world's great skylines.
