"If one had but a single glance to give the world, one should gaze on Istanbul."
- Alphonse de Lamartine
Call it Constantinople, Istanbul or Byzantium. Whatever way, discover the ancient history and traditions of this proud city that for thousands of years has straddled the East-West divide. Marvel at the stunning Blue Mosque and the incredible Hagha Sophia. Take time to learn about life under the Ottoman sultans rule in Topkapi Palace, and join the hustle and bustle in the world`s ultimate market, the Grand Bazaar. Don`t forget to reward your palate with wonderful kebabs, hummus, olives and much more.
