Hire a car in Istanbul and discover two halves of an absolutely stunning city, split by the sparkling waters of the Bosphorus Strait. Take a leisurely wander through the narrow, cobbled streets of the Old Quarter or head to the south to be immersed in the bright lights and fast pace of the entertainment quarter of Beyoğlu.
This is a city that's packed with cultural treasures too, including the fabulous Hagia Sophia, a former Greek Orthodox patriarchal basilica, later an imperial mosque, and now a fascinating museum.
Other must-sees include the beautiful Sultan Ahmed Mosque, Topkapi Palace and the Walls of Constantinople, built in the 4th century to defend the city from invaders. For a splash of green, visit Gülhane Park, a historical, urban garden in the Eminönü district.
