Best things to do and see in Istanbul
Istanbul is the cultural, historical and economic center of Turkey, being the most populated city in the country (ahead of Ankara). It is considered as the link between East and West, although it is also known as the city of a thousand mosques, a thousand and one nights or seven hills. Formerly called Byzantium and Constantinople, it could resemble a large bazaar full of people from all over the world, with hundreds of colors invading the streets and crossed by the Bóforo, the great strait that separates the European city (Rumelia) from the Asian city (Anatolia).
To know a city like this, it is necessary to deepen the history, customs and culture of each of the corners, streets and neighborhoods that make it up. Taking a guided tour with a local guide can help you get to know the city more thoroughly by choosing among the different free walking tours available on Istanbul.
