What you'll see
Istanbul

Welcome to Istanbul! A city born from a blend of European and Asian influences, Turkiye’s capital is full of intriguing sights and ancient wonders, from its spellbinding architecture to its exceptional cuisine.

Today, you’ll be met upon arrival at Istanbul Airport and transferred to your centrally located five-star hotel for a sophisticated stay to start your journey.

After checking into your accommodation for the night, spend your day freely uncovering the city’s most mesmerising sights. Start with the crowning jewel of the elaborate Topkapi Palace, former residence of the sultans of the Ottoman Empire, where you can weave through expansive grounds and walk the ornately designed halls, then look out over the Golden Horn. For those seeking adventure, lose yourself in the joyous jumble of over 4,000 shopfronts at the Grand Bazaar – one of the largest covered markets in the world.

Gaze in awe upon the grandeur of the Blue Mosque, study the structure of its six soaring minarets and take a moment to appreciate the masterful Ottoman architecture. With some 260 windows illuminating its astounding central chamber, the Blue Mosque is a grand beauty no matter your vantage point. Then perhaps find your way to another of the city’s most prized sites, the magnificent Hagia Sophia. This humbling 6th-century Byzantine mosque was once one of the largest basilicas in the Christian world. Today, this mammoth is still recognised for its breathtaking architectural beauty.

Tonight, meet your fellow adventurers for a welcome dinner along the banks of the Bosphorus Strait, toasting to a voyage for the ages.
