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 Turkish and Islamic Arts Museum (Turk ve Islam Eserleri Muzesi). Get some cultural insight at Hagia Sophia and Sultan Ahmed Mosque. Venture out of the city with trips to Buyukada (Eskibag Plaji & Nakibey Plaj), Uzuntarla Tabiat Parki (in Basiskele) and Asaf Family Beach (in Adalar). There's still lots to do: wander the streets of Eyup, get to know the fascinating history of Pierre Loti Tepesi, examine the collection at Rahmi M. Koc Museum, and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Little Hagia Sophia.

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.
