With its rich history, notable architecture and unfamiliar Turkish language, Turkey has long captivated my imagination. Here’s why I’d love to pay a visit . . .

1) Hagia Sophia

Designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1985, Hagia Sophia stands as a museum masterpiece of Byzantine architecture. Once a church, then a mosque, the monument is characterized by its central dome, beautiful mosaics and marble door.

2) The Spice Market

An abundance of color, fragrance, saffrons and curries, fruits and nuts invites shoppers of all nationalities to experience an edible odyssey of wonder and delight.

3) A cruise on the Bosphorous River

For a visual sweep of exotic Istanbul in a relaxing setting, a cruise offers a welcome way to enjoy the local scenery.
