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.
Spend the 9th (Wed) floating through the air with a balloon tour. The adventure continues: get engrossed in the history at Hagia Sophia Museum / Church (Ayasofya), admire the landmark architecture of Dolmabahce Palace, steep yourself in history at Galata Tower, and explore the world behind art at Kariye Museum (The Chora Church).

To see reviews, where to stay, maps, and tourist information, refer to the Istanbul trip builder .

If you are flying in from Egypt, the closest major airports are Atatürk International Airport and Sabiha Gökçen International Airport. In January, plan for daily highs up to 10°C, and evening lows to 10°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 10th (Thu) so you can travel back home.
