About Istanbul

Few places compare to the vibrant, cosmopolitan city of Istanbul, whose enormous size straddles both Europe and Asia, forming a bridge between western and eastern cultures. Resting upon the natural harbor of the Golden Horn, the skyline of the once-Constantinople is pierced with minarets and ancient monuments that embody centuries of history. While it is brimming with historical landmarks and colorful markets, modern Istanbul is also well represented through its contemporary art scene, European-style café culture, world-class dining venues and rooftop cocktail bars.
