Straddling the border of Europe and Asia, Istanbul is a heady intermingling of cultures packed with character.

Its diverse history spans the Greek, Roman, Venetian and Ottoman rulings – all shaping the vibrant, modern city that exists today.

From its ancient baths and mosques, bustling Grand Bazaar markets, spectacular scenery, and mouth-watering local cuisine, this is a city not to be missed. The Topkapi Palace is a must-see, while the Süleymaniye Mosque really is incredible.

One trip you need to take when in town is to the iconic Maiden's Tower, also known as Leander's Tower. The tower is located on a tiny island around 200 metres from the coast of Uskudar, and you can take a short boat trip to reach it. It'll take your breath away.

Needless to say, this Turkish city is a genuine delight.
