Check out the Basilica Cistern : The Parisians can keep their catacombs, and the Londoners can have their dungeons, the dimmed light and classical music make this a unique experience like no other. As you sail underneath the city, look out for the wishing well and the Medusa head statue and marvel at the fish swimming below- this truly is a creepy yet eerily romantic experience.

Cruise the Bosporus : Feed the seagulls as you cruise along the Bosporus on a ferry! The top deck of the boat is where the views are at, and there is always a few hungry birds looking for tourists to share their snacks. This is a once in a lifetime experience when you consider the impressive views from the boat.
