Istanbul
— 3 nights

days
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.
Little Hagia Sophia and Pierre Loti Tepesi will appeal to history buffs. Get some cultural insight at Istiklal Street and Istanbul Archaeological Museums. There's still lots to do: look for gifts at Egyptian Bazaar, admire the striking features of Rustem Pasha Mosque, steep yourself in history at Florya Ataturk Marine Mansion, and pause for some serene contemplation at The Ecumenical Patriarchate.

To see where to stay, traveler tips, reviews, and more tourist information, read Istanbul holiday planner.

If you are flying in from Egypt, the closest major airports are Atatürk International Airport and Sabiha Gökçen International Airport. In April, daily temperatures in Istanbul can reach 19°C, while at night they dip to 10°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 10th (Mon) early enough to travel back home.
