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 historic sites, museums, shopping, nature, and nightlife. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: admire the striking features of Hagia Sophia Museum / Church (Ayasofya), get engrossed in the history at Topkapi Palace, browse the eclectic array of goods at Grand Bazaar (Kapali Carsi), and explore the ancient world of Basilica Cistern.

To see reviews, ratings, where to stay, and other tourist information, read Istanbul trip itinerary planner.

If you are flying in from Egypt, the closest major airports are Atatürk International Airport and Sabiha Gökçen International Airport. In September, plan for daily highs up to 26°C, and evening lows to 26°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 20th (Wed) to allow time to travel back home.
