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.
Istanbul is known for sightseeing, museums, religious sites, shopping, and historic sites. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: admire the landmark architecture of Hagia Sophia Museum / Church (Ayasofya), take an in-depth tour of Kariye Museum (The Chora Church), hunt for treasures at Grand Bazaar (Kapali Carsi), and steep yourself in history at Basilica Cistern.

To see where to stay, maps, ratings, and more tourist information, go to the Istanbul tour planner.

Cairo, Egypt to Istanbul is an approximately 6.5-hour flight. While traveling from Cairo, expect colder days and little chillier nights in Istanbul, ranging from highs of 19°C to lows of 10°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 24th (Mon) early enough to travel back home.
