Istanbul

Queen of Cities

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 29th (Sun): admire the striking features of Rustem Pasha Mosque and then take in the spiritual surroundings of Sultan Ahmed Mosque.

Cairo, Egypt to Istanbul is an approximately 6-hour flight. You can also drive. You'll lose 1 hour traveling from Cairo to Istanbul due to the time zone difference. Plan for a bit cooler temperatures traveling from Cairo in July, with highs in Istanbul at 34°C and lows at 23°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 29th (Sun) to allow enough time to fly back home.

Rich in culture and customs and brimming with hospitality, natural beauty, and historical heritage, Turkey serves as a crossroads between Asia and Europe. The landmass known as Anatolia on which Turkey thrives has been home to numerous civilizations and their faiths and cultures, as attested by the 13 World Heritage Sites and countless religious sites you'll find here. Relive the ancient world through the ruins, customs, and traditions that are among the nation's most precious heritages. Adventure-seekers have plenty do to here, including mountain climbing, scuba diving, rafting, and skiing. A holiday to Turkey is incomplete without a cup of Turkish coffee, the pinnacle of Turkish cuisine inscribed on the Intangible Cultural Heritage List.
