Irresistable Istanbul Attracts Growing Tourist Interest

Turkey's travel industry authorities have been promoting the exotic and diverse city of Istanbul as an ideal place for British holidaymakers to visit this year.

The Turkish Culture and Tourism Office highlighted the cultural and historical delights of taking an Istanbul city break. A spokesperson referenced the eclectic mix of historical influences that can be seen in every facet of the city's make-up; from the times of Ancient Rome, through the Byzantine Empire era and Ottoman Empire right up until the current day.

Turkish Culture and Tourism Office spokeswoman Joanna Marsh said that Istanbul is: "one of those cities which everyone has on their list of places to visit at least once in their lifetime."
