Istanbul is another iconic city in the world. Dating back 3000 years, it’s no wonder that it is considered a centre of culture, commerce, finance and media. It stretches along the northern shore of the Marmara Sea and is located on both sides of the Bosporus, making it the only country in the world that is located on two continents!
You will be staying in the 4* Skalion Hotel, which has received a TripAdvisor rating of 4.5/5. You will be staying here for 3 nights, during this time you will be provided with a daily breakfast, so you can enjoy a nice relaxing morning before heading out to explore the city.
Whilst you’re in Istanbul you won’t be short of things to do. Whether you want to walk the streets, enjoy the aromas floating through the air of the traditional spices used for the cooking or just see the sights, you will definitely need to make sure you plan this trip!
Your hotel is just a few hundred metres from the Grand Bazaar, which is perfect if you wanted to go and do a bit of shopping or bargain hunting! You’re also really close the the Sultanahmet district, which is a really charming and historic area, definitely worth having a look around. It’s also the perfect place to go if you want to buy a Turkish rug!
I would really recommend heading to the Cagaloglu Hamam, which is a road that is famous for its beautiful hararets (steam rooms). These date back to the 18th century, and these baths are definitely worthwhile. It’s a really good way to spend a few hours relaxing.
