Istanbul

— 21 nights

Queen of Cities

A physical and cultural bridge between Europe and Asia, the transcontinental city of Istanbul serves as a living reminder of the Roman, Byzantine, and Ottoman empires.
Museum-lovers will get to explore Topkapi Palace and Chora Museum. Get some cultural insight at Hagia Sophia and Ortakoy. Venture out of the city with trips to Asaf Family Beach (in Adalar), Uzuntarla Tabiat Parki (in Basiskele) and Buyukada (Eskibag Plaji & Nakibey Plaj). There's still lots to do: get engrossed in the history at Istanbul Archaeological Museum, get to know the fascinating history of Pierre Loti Tepesi, admire the landmark architecture of Ayasofya Hurrem Sultan Hamam, and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Yeni Camii.

For reviews, ratings, and other tourist information, read our Istanbul day trip tool.

In August, plan for daily highs up to 34°C, and evening lows to 25°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 31st (Mon) to allow enough time to travel back home.
