NOTE (1 July 2016): Some cruise lines have swapped Istanbul for Athens; check your itinerary for its current status. Istanbul (Byzantium from 660 BC, Constantinople from 330 CE, and Istanbul since 1930) is the largest city in Turkey and the fifth largest city proper in the world. It has dominated the Straits of Bosphorus, in the NW of the country, for 25 centuries, and as Constantinople was the capital of the Eastern Roman Empire. It was a metropolis of stunning splendour when the great capitals of Europe were mere villages and is the only metropolis in the world that is situated on two continents. The influence of Asia and Europe, the religion of Christians and Muslims, and the culture of Turks, Persians and Asians, have all found their way into the daily life of this bustling metropolis.

Some famous sights are the Sultan Ahmed Mosque, the Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace, nearby Istanbul Archaeology Museum, and Dolmabahçe Palace. With buildings dating back to 408 BC (such as the Maiden's Tower), over numerous time periods subsequent buildings including places of worship, the Column of Constantine, the Ottoman castles, and the grandiose embassy buildings of today, we are presented with an intriguing architectural experience. There are also numerous historic shopping centres such as the Grand Bazaar, Cevahir Mall (the largest Mall in Europe), and a broad range of Turkish, European, and Far Eastern restaurants.

Take a tram ride. Tours include a One Day Sightseeing Tour for a perfect introduction to the fabled city. Cross between Europe and Asia on the Fatih Sultan Mehmet Bridge. Take a hop-on hop-off ninety-minute bus tour, see Istanbul by night with its floodlit mosques, and enjoy a fabulous Turkish dinner with floor-show and bejewelled belly dancers. Between April and October rent a city bike. Additionally, visit the museums, enjoy the Egyptian Bazaar, and walk around historical sites. It can be appreciated why tourists are keen to visit this truly unique city.
