A physical and cultural bridge between Europe and Asia, the transcontinental city of Istanbul serves as a living reminder of the Roman, Byzantine, and Ottoman empires.
Your day-by-day itinerary now includes Neve Shalom Synagogue, Bet Avraam Synagogue and Bet Israel Synagogue. There's lots more to do: get engrossed in the history at Hagia Sophia Museum, admire the landmark architecture of Dolmabahce Palace, hunt for treasures at Kapali Carsi, and contemplate the waterfront views at Bosphorus Strait.
