Istanbul

Sultanahmet

The Hagia Sophia, the Blue Mosque, the Topkapi Palace, and the underground cistern of Yerebatan Sarniçi all reside within the ancient neighborhood. (Tip: Skip the full tour of the entire Topkapi Palace and make a beeline for its harem, that legendary lair of the Ottoman sultans.) After you've scoped out the area's heavy-hitter sightseeing, here are some other spots worth exploring—in Sultanahmet and beyond.
