Every city is unique, but there is no such thing as Istanbul: Between two continents, Istanbul (once Constantinople) has always been a place of vibrant fusion between east and west, the last stronghold of the Roman Empire, the beating heart of the Byzantine Empire and the Ottoman capital.Much of Istanbul’s glorious past is still visible and visitable.
Among the famous domes of mosques and elegant Orthodox churches, visitors can see the Roman catacombs, Byzantine battlements and Ottoman palaces, many of which have now become some of the best places to stay in Istanbul.
