Plan a Trip to Istanbul
Create your Istanbul itinerary in minutes
Being mostly Muslim, mysterious Istanbul attracts tourists with numerous landmarks lying on its European side. The most famous attraction is the Galata Tower that rises dramatically above the same-name neighborhood, founded by Genoese colonists. Plenty of mosques, such as Sultan Ahmet Camii, Hagia Sofia (now known as a museum) and others represent the Islamic heritage of the city. Along with this, no Istanbul tour can be complete without visiting its markets (bazaars) and plunging deep into the fabulous world of colors, flavors, and smells.
