The majority of Istanbul's noteworthy attractions are buildings with an ecclesiastical heritage.
Though not the capital of Turkey, Istanbul is the country's largest city and its centre of fashion, culture, and the arts.
Technically spanning both Asia and Europe, visitors can explore magnificent, historic attractions such as the Galata Tower, Hagia Sophia, and the Blue Mosque.
Modern European and American dishes are ubiquitous but the real joy is tucking into juicy kebabs, menemen (Turkish omelette), and mezze plates (small dishes of typical appetizers).
On the banks of the river, just below the Galata Tower, pick up a fish sandwich from local vendors.
