Everything you need to know about Istanbul

Istanbul is one of the most visited cities in the world and, having been the capital of the Roman, Byzantine and Ottoman empires, is a fact that no traveller can overlook. Let yourself be seduced by the history of ancient Constantinople and its natural landscapes: the Golden Horn and the Bosphorus. Chaotic and serene, with more than 15 million inhabitants, Istanbul is the largest city in Turkey. No visitor remains indifferent, surrendering to the contrasts of a city too eastern to be European, and too western to be Asian. As if it were a journey into the past, while sightseeing in Istanbul you will find yourself in this historic and lively city located between two seas, the Sea of Marmara and the Black Sea; between two continents, Europe and Asia; and between two worlds, the traditional and the modern. Visiting Hagia Sophia and the Blue Mosque, cruising the Bosphorus by boat, bargaining in the Grand Bazaar and seeing the reflection of the maximum splendour of the Ottoman Empire in the Topkapi Palace is something that every traveller has wished for at some point in their lives.
