Istanbul famously connects Europe to Asia, and its multicultural landmarks — like the Blue Mosque — will stun your IG feed. But it’s not just your eyes that’ll feast: Your tastebuds will start bright and early with traditional Turkish breakfasts (kahvalti) and plenty of coffee. You’ll think it can’t be topped, and then you’ll have lunch.

Once you’ve got your fill of Istanbul, head east. Cappadocia in winter is a sight for sore eyes, and Izmir is not to be missed. Out east, there’s plenty to see since the crowds have cleared. The possibilities are spelled out below, and, yes, there will be plenty of hot air balloons and fairy chimneys, too.
