Setting sail from Istanbul

This is one of those destinations that really does live up to the hype! Istanbul is the place where East meets West, where Asia Minor reaches out across the Bosphorus and almost touches Europe. In its earlier incarnation as Constantinople, the city was the eastern bastion of the Byzantine Empire, holding out for centuries before finally capitulating to the Ottomans in 1453, and it remains a bristling, bustling cultural melting pot, the skyline dotted with magnificent minarets and domes.

Don't miss

Hagia Sofia, Topkapi Palace, the Blue Mosque, the Basilica Cistern, the Grand Bazaar, the Golden Horn, the Suleiman Mosque, the spice market, the shopping, the museums and galleries and… so much more!

Arriving in Venice

Venice is a city like no other, a marble maze of turquoise canals criss-crossed by beautiful bridges, overflowing with palaces, churches and charming little piazzas. No matter how many times you've seen it in photographs, that first glimpse of the Grand Canal will simply take your breath away; it hardly seems credible that such an eye-popping scene could exist outside of a Canaletto painting. Of course Venice is a city that draws big crowds, especially in summer, but don't let this put you off; even the busiest areas are never more than a few steps from a quiet courtyard or a secluded square.

Our tip

The long, long queues for St Marks might put you off, but just book online in advance for timed entrance and bypass the exhausted tourists.

Ways to make it better
Four Seasons Sultanahmet, Istanbul

Our recommended hotel in Istanbul

We love the intimate Four Seasons at Sultanahmet, but – top Mundy tip! - it is so small that it’s often fully booked, so don’t hang about.

Hot air balloons over Cappadocia, Turkey

See more of Turkey

Take a few extra days and travel to Cappadocia for the extraordinary Star Wars scenery, rock caves and churches.

Hotel Metropole, Venice

Our favourite hotel in Venice

The Metropole is an old favourite for its quieter location and lovely lagoon views.

See more of the Veneto

If you’ve time, take the train to Padova and visit the Scrovegni Chapel.
