What is Istanbul Tourist Pass?


If it's your first or twentieth visit to Istanbul, you'll notice that the city never fails to amaze its visitors. In this metropolis, there are hundreds of architectural monuments, educational centres, and museums to visit in Istanbul. Istanbul's allure stems not just from its ancient sites, but also from its people and culture. You'll want to get to the historical center of Istanbul's history as soon as possible when you visit.
