This ancient city is stacked with iconic sights and, an eye-watering 14 million people call it home.

In a city with so many people, huge football clubs follow naturally.

Istanbul is home to five top-flight teams and three true giants of the game – Beskitas, Galatasary, and Fenerbahce.

Three clubs that each command millions of fans and result in a local football scene full of chaos, noise, and colour.

On this trip, you’ll take in the city’s most symbolic rivalry – the Intercontinental Derby between Galatasary and Fenerbache.

This is the game where Europe meets Asia and Istanbul’s two most successful clubs fight it out.

Your weekend will be led by Sinan, a local football fan turned host. Sinan will show you the very best of his chaotic and mystical city – and let you discover it’s relentless football culture from the inside.

If the history and sights of Istanbul aren’t enough to take your breath away, the Intercontinental Derby is sure to finish the job.

This incredible weekend puts a magical city, great food, and a monumental football scene into the palm of your hand. See you there!
