Turkey’s largest city, Istanbul, famously straddles two continents, Europe and Asia. This strategic location made Turkey a gateway to ancient civilizations, and its culture reflects the influences of many ruling empires over its 3,000-year history. Visitors to Istanbul delight in the city’s innumerable joys, including the Grand Bazaar, Topkapi Palace, the Blue Mosque, and one of the world’s wonders, the Hagia Sophia.

Talk about easy access. The strength of Turkey’s travel infrastructure is often a surprise to those who haven’t

Turkish Airlines is the world’s largest carrier, offering scheduled service to 340 destinations in Europe, Asia, Africa and the Americas, while Turkey boasts 35 international airports throughout the country. Istanbul Airport, completed in 2019, is among the world’s largest and most modern.
