The beloved Stanley Ferry crosses the bay in just over ten minutes and only costs a couple of dollars. See the amazing evening light display (before 8pm). 

Istanbul, Turkey

Cruise the Bosporus onboard the Sehir Hatiari Ferry and you'll see two sides of Turkey – the Asian and the European – on either side of the natural strait.

Try the Vaporetto - hop on and hop off - to cruise the Grand Canal and stop at Murano and the Lido.
