Istanbul flights arrive in a city that blends European and Middle Eastern, divided by the river Bosphorus, which links the city to Europe. Developed out of the ancient Greek colony of Byzantium, into the city Constantinople, Istanbul now offers a wealth of stunning historical interest including such sights as the Topkapi Palace, the Hagia Sophia basilica (now a museum) and the Galata tower. For shopoholics, the Grand Bazaar of Istanbul, with more than four thousand shops under cover, is said to be the oldest shopping centre in the world, and is very easy to get lost in, but there will always be a tea garden somewhere nearby to refresh you. There are two airports here, Ataturk and Sabiha Gokcen.
