Why Travel to Istanbul?

Istanbul is a city steeped in deep and rich history. It was initially founded by the Greeks as Byzantium in 638 BC, later becoming Constantinople under Roman rule in 324, then officially becoming Istanbul many years later. It was ruled by Greeks, Romans, Byzantines and Ottomans. It goes without saying that Istanbul is one of the most diverse cities in the world.

To really learn more about the history of the Istanbul and its unique traditions, cuisine and culture, it’s important to take a closer look at individual neighborhoods such as Sultanahmet, Beyoglu, Balat and Kadikoy. These are iconic areas in Istanbul and excellent locations for a walking tour.
