In addition to the ancient city of Ephesus, Istanbul is becoming such a popular stop on cruise routes. Many cruise lines make two major stops in Turkey: Ephesus (Kusadasi and Istanbul). Istanbul is also a turn around point for some cruise lines. This means many cruises start from and end in Istanbul. This is a great opportunity for many visitors to explore the city of Istanbul, which once upon a time served as the official capital to three great empires in history: The Roman, Byzantine and Ottoman. This way, many visitors arrive in Istanbul a few days earlier than their cruise ship and have the chance to see the highlights and off the beaten paths in Istanbul.
