“Some prefer to do it with others but we suggest that you do it Independent for Istanbul”
‘New Rome’, as Constantine the Great meant to name her, Constantinople was the greatest political power of the ancient and medieval world.
In the grounds of the city Roman builders exhibited the best of their talents, and their efforts were reflected in monumental achievements during the long saga of the creation of a new world religion and its imperial capital.
Constantinople was not at all less impressive than Rome, and due to its unequaled natural setting, even more fascinating to the visitors.
