Arrive in Istanbul and transfer to your chosen hotel, either the luxurious Pera Palace Hotel, located in the heart of the city's vibrant Beyoglu district, or the Marti Istanbul (superior), an elegant property in Taksim, a neighbourhood known for its superb shopping, bustling nightlife and proximity to many of the city's main attractions.

Stay: Pera Palace Hotel (Deluxe) 

Meals: B

Days 2-6

Spend three days exploring Istanbul, a city that straddles continents and cultures and is home to a wealth of fascinating monuments including the famous Blue Mosque; the Basilica Cistern; and the Haghia Sophia, a former Greek Orthodox church of outstanding architectural beauty and a revered monument for both the Byzantine and Ottoman empires. But this is a city with far more to offer than just its many historical sites, as impressive as they are. You'll also discover colourful, chaotic bazaars, perfect for even the most avid of bargain hunters; a myriad of amazing art galleries; fantastic food at some of Turkey's best restaurants; and a host of historic hamams - Istanbul's famous Ottoman bath houses - where you can indulge in the relaxing ritual of massage, soap down and scrub.
