Istanbul, the most European city in Asia

Hy luuuxers :)

This magnificent city straddles the Bosphorus, Byzantium was a Greek, Roman to Ottoman Constantinople and finally Istanbul. Its historic center is considered World Heritage by UNESCO, for its important monuments and historical ruins. We highlight the Byzantine Hippodrome, the Hagia Sophia and Blue Mosque, a masterpiece of architecture with its six minarets and the interior covered with 21,403 tiles from Iznik. Required also visit the Topkapi Palace and what is known as the "soul" of the city, the Grand Bazaar, the largest covered market in the world, where textiles and lamps of metal and glass with a thousand colors, copper kettles, gold and precious stones, bring to mind the stories of Ali-Baba.
