Car hire Istanbul information
Istanbul on the Bosporus Strait in Turkey
is a one-of-a-kind metropolis in the world that spans two continents (Europe and Asia) and is the largest city in the country with a population of over ten million people. Istanbul, founded in 660 B.C., first climbed into the ranks of a major city under the old name of Constantinople. And even today many places of interest show some of the splendour of earlier times. Mainly the Roman buildings, the mosques and palaces, Topkapi Palace, for instance, are some of the things you should make sure not to miss as part of a sightseeing tour of the city by hired car. The old town, a World Heritage Site, is also worth a visit. Another sign of the influence the former capital city still has on the world can be seen from the long list of partner cities which include famous places such as Athens
and Shanghai in China.
