Some people might like to give this city a bad rep, but in actual fact you’ll find this city to be one filled with character, zest and above all bucketloads of history! Tick off another classical city destination with this awesome Istanbul break I’ve spotted. :)

Istanbul break

Straddling the banks of the Bosphorus Strait, Istanbul has always been the place where East meets West. With classical architecture dotted with breathtaking mosques and medieval Ottoman fortresses, you’ll fall for its charm in no time at all.

This Expedia deal I’ve spotted comes with a stay in a stunning 4* hotel in a fantastic central location, plus your return flights from Dublin. From the airport it’s a short onward journey to where you’re staying, the Niles Hotel. Here you’ll find luxury interiors inspired by the Ottoman times, and there’s even a fantastic roof terrace where you can enjoy some wicked views.  The deal also comes with breakfast – just be sure to select the option. :)

Istanbul’s long history means that culture lovers are going to have a field day here! From the iconic Hagia Sophia to the Topkapι Palace, you’ll be able to retrace the steps of the various empires and eras. Get some shopping done at the famous Grand Bazaar, and towards night you’ve got a fantastic nightlife scene and restaurants serving amazing Turkish dishes and feasts. So I reckon you’ve got more than enough to keep you busy here! ;)

Don’t let the naysayers put you off – travelling is all about experiencing new cultures after all, and Istanbul really does have it all! Just click the link below to book your city break.
