One of our 2019 Adventure will be Istanbul, the former outpost of the Roman Empire established by the first Christian Emperor, Constantine.

The long and torrid history of this pivotal city, capitol of both Christian and Ottoman Empires is a wondrous site to behold. The mixing and contrast of eastern and western cultures along the famous Bosphorus River joins both the continents of Europe and Asia Minor. Famed site of the crusades and historic Islamic battles, Istanbul has been heraled for its many historical intrigues, splendid flea and spice markets. You must save room in your suitcase for a Turkish rug or fashionable textile, as a souvenir of this once in a lifetime exotic experience. Of course we will have Turkish chocolates and coffee after visiting the awesome Hagia Sophia Mosque and the Emperor’s Palace, the Topkapi Museum.
