Istanbul

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.
Hodjapasha Cultural Center has been added to your itinerary. There's much more to do: admire the striking features of Hagia Sophia Museum / Church (Ayasofya), enjoy breathtaking views from Galata Tower, take an in-depth tour of Kariye Museum (The Chora Church), and browse the eclectic array of goods at Grand Bazaar (Kapali Carsi).

For reviews and other tourist information, you can read our Istanbul itinerary builder.

If you are flying in from Saudi Arabia, the closest major airports are Atatürk International Airport and Sabiha Gökçen International Airport. In February, daily temperatures in Istanbul can reach 11°C, while at night they dip to 4°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 12th (Sun) to allow time to travel back home.
