Where east meets west…

Straddling the Bosphorus strait between the Sea of Marmara and the Black Sea, Istanbul marks the point where Europe and Asia meet to form a melting pot of diverse cultures and fascinating stories.

As the economic, commercial and historical heart of Turkey, Istanbul blends the old with the new as Ottoman mosques, Byzantine churches and grand bazaars happily co-exist with modern restaurants, stylish bars and contemporary galleries. And as you’d expect, flying into Istanbul can be achieved via airports situated on both continents. Ataturk Airport on the east and Sabiha Gökçen on the west – both with regular Shuttle Bus services to the city centre.
