One city, two continents and more culture than you can shake a stick at, a holiday in Istanbul promises the extraordinary. Straddling the mighty Bosphorus River, Istanbul has one foot in Europe and another in Asia, rendering it a heady mix of the familiar and the exotic.
The Istanbul most visited by tourists tends to be on the European side of the Bosphorus. The city’s old quarter, Sultanahmet, is home to almost all its most famous historic sites, including the opulent Topkapi Palace, the huge dome of the Hagia Sophia, the gorgeous silhouette of the Blue Mosque and the grand Basilica Cistern.
Over the Golden Horn from Sultanahmet, Beyoğlu is the city centre’s modern hub. It’s home to the best restaurants, a thriving café culture, lively nightlife options and a rich arts scene, with galleries, theatres and live music venues.
*ATOL (Air Travel Organiser's Licence) is a financial protection scheme for package holidays: It provides support to consumers in the event their holiday provider collapses. Booking with an ATOL holder ensures that you won't be left out of pocket and you won't be left stranded abroad. All package holidays compared using TravelSupermarket are protected by ATOL.
ABTA (Association of British Travel Agents) offers similar cover for packages booked with its members. However, while ATOL predominantly covers flight-based packages, ABTA covers non-flight based holidays (such as rail and cruise) and linked travel arrangements. If you are unsure whether or not your trip is covered by ABTA, check with your provider.
