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.
Bring the kids along to Grand Bazaar (Kapali Carsi) and Basilica Cistern. Sultanahmet District and Little Hagia Sophia will appeal to history buffs. There's still lots to do: take an in-depth tour of Topkapi Palace, admire the masterpieces at Kariye Museum (The Chora Church), stroll through Suma Beach, and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Sultan Ahmed Mosque.

To see where to stay, more things to do, photos, and more tourist information, read our Istanbul vacation trip planner.

Cairo, Egypt to Istanbul is an approximately 6.5-hour flight. When traveling from Cairo in July, plan for little chillier days in Istanbul, with highs around 35°C, while nights are about the same with lows around 25°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 5th (Wed) so you can travel back home.
