Istanbul

Overview

Located on the Bosphorus where Europe meets Asia, Istanbul is an intense, almost overwhelming experience. The skyline is spectacular; vivid colours and smells, and unfamiliar sounds assail you at every turn. The Blue Mosque and Aghia Sophia – and the Topkapi Palace – are staggering in their size and opulence. Lose yourself in the intoxicating markets and bazaars. The Kirker Guide Notes will lead you to some very special restaurants.
