A Combination of Modern and Traditional

Experience the Cool Vibes of Istanbul

There are many breakfast options in İstanbul, all with stunning views of the Bosphorus or the city. Your clients can check out Kahvaltıcılar Sokağı (Breakfast Street), a breakfast lovers’ favorite haunt, full of cafés, in Beşiktaş.

For those seeking to get out of the city, why not jump on a ferry and explore the Princes’ Islands? These seven islands are a short ride away and each have their own unique feel, as well as beaches, walking and cycling tracks, cute cafés, and restaurants.

İstanbul has a thriving art scene, so art lovers should check out the latest exhibitions in Beyoğlu, Kadiköy, Emirgan, Maslak, or Beykoz, where there are a number of large galleries and museums.

For evening shows, there are often local and international artists touring and countless bars, pubs and concert halls almost every night of the week.

Meyhanes, or taverns, are found in almost every corner of İstanbul. Whether your clients are in the mood for modern twists on traditional cuisine in an upscale restaurant, traditional cuisine with a view of the sea, or a more casual meal with friends, a meyhane night is highly recommended.

Rich Culture, History and Monuments

It is İstanbul's endless variety that fascinates its visitors. The museums, churches, palaces, grand mosques, bazaars, and sites of natural beauty are countless.

İstanbul is Türkiye's most developed and largest city, with the latest discoveries indicating that the history of human habitation here goes back some 400,000 years.

During the reign of the Byzantines, İstanbul known at the time as Constantinople, was adorned with a number of great monuments, which made it the most magnificent city in the world – this was true even during the declining years of the empire.

What to See in Istanbul

For more than 1,500 years İstanbul was the capital of the Roman, Byzantine, and Ottoman Empires. These cultures, nations, and religions are the small colored stones that form the mosaic of İstanbul.

The most magnificent of İstanbul's monuments are clustered on the Historical Peninsula, with two notable masterpieces, the Ayasofya-i Kebîr Cami-i Şerîfi (Hagia Sophia Grand Mosque) and the Süleymaniye Mosque

In Haliç, known as the Golden Horn, the Fener and Balat neighborhoods have streets full of old wooden houses, churches, and synagogues dating from Byzantine and Ottoman times.

Another historical area of İstanbul, on the opposite shore of the Golden Horn, is the former district of Pera, with its famous Galata Tower.

No stay in İstanbul is complete without a boat excursion up the Bosphorus, the strait that separates Europe and Asia. Its shores offer a delightful mixture of past and present, grand splendors and simple beauty, like the magnificent Dolmabahçe Palace.


When visiting one of the world's richest cities in terms of cultural heritage, 48 hours is hardly enough time to even scratch the surface. Here's some of the things your clients can do to get a taste of what İstanbul has to offer.

1. Take in the beauty and immensity of the Blue Mosque (Sultan Ahmet Camii in Turkish).

2. Go beneath the surface of İstanbul's streets and see a sculpture of the head of Medusa in the Basilica Cistern.

3. Visit İstanbul's most renowned and impressive structure the Ayasofya-i Kebîr Cami-i Şerîfi (Hagia Sophia Grand Mosque).

4. Go to the Spice Bazaar in the neighborhood of Eminönü where besides spices, sweets, nuts, and dried fruits your clients can find shoes, carpets, kilims (flat tapestry-woven rugs) and more. 

5. Stroll through İstanbul's traditional Christian and Jewish quarter of Balat, an up-and-coming design district with colorful buildings and steep hills. 

6. Have an afternoon break for some çay (Turkish tea).
