In our guide, we have divided Turkey’s most populous city into five areas: the historic peninsula of the Old City, including the Golden Horn, Beyoğlu and the traditionally European quarter, the Bosphorus, the Princes Islands, and the new cities that cluster on both sides of the Bosphorous. As you explore, all manner of tips will be whispered in your virtual ear, from the best views and who to read when resting in the garden of the Topkapı. Enjoy Istanbul!


O/M Lying on both sides of the Bosphorus, the narrow strait between the Black Sea and the Marmara Sea, Istanbul bridges Asia and Europe.
