A city where the oriental East meets the European West, Istanbul combines the traditional with the modern. Dotted with museums, bazaars, Byzantine churches and grand mosques, Turkey’s most populous city is like an outdoor museum.

Hagia Sophia, the Topkapı Palace and the Blue Mosque comprise part of the World Heritage-listed Historic Areas of Istanbul bearing witness to the city’s turbulent past. And with the magical Bosphorus as the city’s backdrop, the scenery is captivating by day and night.

Listen to the stories of the architectural masterpieces that have been adorning Istanbul for centuries with Clio Muse’s self-guided audio tours and virtual tour experiences.
