Istanbul

Season 5 Episode 12 | 25m 4s | Video has closed captioning.

Where Europe comes face to face with Asia, we’ll explore the fascinating city of Istanbul. We’ll lose our way in the Grand Bazaar, munch our way through the famously fragrant Spice Market. We’ll follow the fall of the ancient capital of Byzantium and the rise of Islam at the city’s ancient wall, and wander among the treasures of the Hagia Sophia, Blue Mosque, and Topkapi Palace.
