Istanbul

Book a flight from London to Istanbul and experience the city’s exotic sights and scents. Most of the historic and religious monuments in Istanbul date back to the Roman, Byzantine, and Ottoman periods. Visit the Church of St Savior in Chorafor to see the incredible mosaics and frescoes that cover the interior. Wooden mansions and beautiful pine groves give Princes Island, a series of nine car-free islands just off the coast, a wonderful ambiance you should better not miss out on. Visitors to Istanbul will also want to try a Turkish bath and perhaps also a hookah, or Turkish water pipe.

A walk along the ancient Theodosian Walls that defended the city for centuries is another must for every traveler. Istanbul offers an amazing shopping experience that runs the gamut from oriental bazaars to modern shopping malls. Try some fresh Turkish delight or Turkish tea when you arrive. A culinary must you should definitely try are the many fish restaurants located directly on or respectively under the Galata Bridge. Discover Istanbul with all its mosques, churches, castles, bazars, bridges and picturesque pedestrian zones. Will you prefer the Asian part over the European?
