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.
Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Grand Bazaar (Kapali Carsi) and Egyptian Bazaar. Popular historic sites such as Sultanahmet District and Golden Horn are in your itinerary. Next up on the itinerary: admire the landmark architecture of Hagia Sophia Museum / Church (Ayasofya), take a stroll through Ortakoy, kick back and relax at Suma Beach, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Florya Sahil Parkı.

For traveler tips, maps, ratings, and more tourist information, go to the Istanbul sightseeing planner.

If you are flying in from Egypt, the closest major airports are Atatürk International Airport and Sabiha Gökçen International Airport. July in Istanbul sees daily highs of 35°C and lows of 25°C at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 20th (Thu) to allow enough time to travel back home.
