Byzantium, Constantinople, Istanbul. It’s the only city to have been the capital of two great empires (Greek and Roman) and is unique in that it straddles the continents of Europe and Asia making it quite literally the meeting place of east and west.
It’s an urban cultural center rich with the incandescence of its past. A melting pot of old and new from its minarets and contemporary art galleries, to the bazars and trendy cafés, traditional crafts and designer clothing, not to forget the Hammams and night clubs…
But what is most appealing about the city are its people who have an infectious love of life and generosity of spirit. It’s no wonder that Istanbul has enthralled Alex Webb since 1998, and it’s right here in this vibrant city where we will be teaching you how to take your street and storytelling skills to the next level!
