A blend of the past civilizations that once controlled its streets, Istanbul is a city unlike any other, and with a history as colorful as it’s Grand Bazaar, there is no shortage of adventures to be had. Opt for a one-night stay in a centrally located hotel in Istanbul before your Odyssey at Sea voyage, and explore a city that spans two continents on your own terms. Discover the impact of the Roman, Byzantine and Ottoman empires at the Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia and Topkapi Palace, sample the local fare, shop at the impressive bazaars or indulge in a traditional Turkish bath on your personal discovery.
