Once the heart of the great Byzantine, late Roman and more recently the Ottoman empires, the significant strategic location of Istanbul has secured its place in history. Today the legacy of these important cultures remains scattered throughout modern Istanbul.
From the Ottoman period, consider exploring the impressive Topkapı Palace and the incredibly beautiful Sultanahmet Mosque, which is more commonly known as the Blue Mosque because of its distinctive tiling. The Dolmabahçe Palace is a glittering example of late Ottoman architecture. The iconic Hagia Sophia was initially constructed by the Byzantines with the minarets added later by the Ottomans. The Maiden's Tower was built by the Greeks in 411BCE as an ancient lighthouse. The Roman legacy remains with the layout of the Hippodrome, sections of Valens Aqueduct, which was used to deliver water to the city and Column of Constantine.
While in Istanbul, it would be remiss not to indulge in an invigorating Turkish bath at a traditional hammam. A cruise up the Bosphorus is also a great way to spend a day. Departing from central Turkey, enthusiasts take in the sights along this historically important waterway to the mouth of the Black Sea. Most boats stop at Yoros Kalesi, a fortification constructed to protect the city, before returning to Istanbul. With our cheap flights to Turkey, you can explore all these sights and more throughout this fascinating city.
