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.
Kick off your visit on the 20th (Thu): get engrossed in the history at Topkapi Palace, admire the landmark architecture of Hagia Sophia Museum / Church (Ayasofya), then delve into the distant past at Basilica Cistern, and finally contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Sultan Ahmed Mosque.

To see maps, photos, and other tourist information, you can read our Istanbul trip planner .

If you are flying in from Egypt, the closest major airports are Atatürk International Airport and Sabiha Gökçen International Airport. In September, daily temperatures in Istanbul can reach 26°C, while at night they dip to 26°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 20th (Thu) to allow enough time to travel back home.
