ITINEARARY

Istanbul Istanbul's location has attracted many raiding armed forces throughout the hundreds of years. The Greeks, Romans and Venetians took turns before the Ottomans raged into town and chose to remain in the city. The way that the city straddles two landmasses wasn't it’s just draw card - it was the last stage on the incredible Silk Road connecting Asia with Europe. The main reason for the tourist's attractions is local people, who have an irresistible love of life and liberality of soul. Istanbul is Turkey’s metropolitan city, and thus it attracts so many tourists from all over the world. It a perfect place for both vacationers and visiting professionals

Following the visits your guide will take you the Grand Bazaar for demonstration of Turkish Handicrafts.
