Turkey is one of the most fascinating countries I’ve ever had the pleasure of visiting. It’s only one of the seven countries in the world that spans two continents. Turkey definitely has the feel that it’s part of two different worlds… especially in Istanbul! It’s truly unlike any culture I’ve experienced. I spent a total of three days in Istanbul, two of which were on a tour with Intrepid Travel. I had an absolutely amazing time on that trip, and if you’re interested in learning about my experience, check out my most recent blog post. Otherwise, read on for my suggested travel itinerary for three days in Istanbul! I adapted the itinerary from what I saw and did on my Intrepid tour, as well as what I did myself after the tour, using many of the suggestions given to me by my wonderful tour guide, Ayșenur.
