Istanbul, ancient Byzantium and Constantinople, has been the capital of three empires. Today, without being the capital of Turkey, it is the largest city in the country and an icon of culture, history, and tourism. Travellers can expect to be fascinated by the contrasts in a city located between two seas, the Marmara Sea and the Black Sea, and between two continents, Europe and Asia. All of these unique features have made it one of the most visited cities in the world.

The Golden Horn also divides the European area into the old town and the new city. And in Istanbul everything is special. Diverse traditions, cultures and religions have existed for many centuries to make this historic and lively city a unique enclave in Turkey.

What to see in Istanbul

It is not difficult for those who arrive in Istanbul to be seduced by the history of this city and its natural landscapes. Civilisations that have passed through the city have left their trace in Istanbul. Monuments, palaces, mosques, fountains and cisterns; they all carry the memory of the cultures that have had contact with this city.

In addition to visiting the most important tourist attractions such as mosques, museums or Turkish baths, the immense diversity of this destination gives you the opportunity to discover other lesser-known places. Istanbul is a city of contrasts: in its cultures, in its sounds and its flavours. It is undoubtedly one of the most surprising places in the world and has many places to visit.

Stay in our hotels in Istanbul and discover the Hagia Sophia, the Blue Mosque, the Grand Bazaar, the Topkapi Palace, the Basilica Cistern and the Galata Tower, which are some of the most emblematic places in the city.
