Most of our groups choose to base themselves in Istanbul, the country’s largest city. Istanbul is a fascinating destination for a school trip, because it’s located in both Europe and Asia, with the Bosporus acting as the divider between the two continents.
Here, your students will visit important monuments, such as the Blue Mosque and the grand Ottoman Topkapi Palace. And at the Grand Bazaar, your students will experience Turkish culture up close.
Turkey has also been at the heart of several important empires, including the Byzantine and Ottoman Empires. And so, having been both Christian and Muslim, Turkey offers a fantastic opportunity to see how these two world religions have interacted throughout history. There are also a fantastic range of monuments to discover, telling the story of the various civilisations that have populated the area we now call Turkey.
