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.
Do some cultural sightseeing at Golden Horn and Ortakoy. You'll discover tucked-away gems like Little Hagia Sophia and Florya Sahil Parkı. And it doesn't end there: take a stroll through Istiklal Street, appreciate the extensive heritage of Pierre Loti Tepesi, kick back and relax at Suma Beach, and take in the architecture and atmosphere at St. Triada Church.

For other places to visit, more things to do, reviews, and more tourist information, read Istanbul travel planner.

If you are flying in from Egypt, the closest major airports are Atatürk International Airport and Sabiha Gökçen International Airport. In February, daytime highs in Istanbul are 11°C, while nighttime lows are 4°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 16th (Thu) so you can travel back home.
