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.
You'll explore and learn at Kariye Museum (The Chora Church) and Rahmi M. Koc Museum. Head to Grand Bazaar (Kapali Carsi) and Mısır Çarşısıfor some retail therapy. There's much more to do: kick back and relax at Dalia Beach, stroll through Suma Beach, admire the masterpieces at Istanbul Modern Museum, and take an in-depth tour of Topkapi Palace.

For traveler tips, maps, reviews, and more tourist information, read our Istanbul trip itinerary maker.

If you are flying in from Egypt, the closest major airports are Atatürk International Airport and Sabiha Gökçen International Airport. Expect a daytime high around 19°C in April, and nighttime lows around 10°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 21st (Fri) to allow enough time to travel back home.
