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.
You'll get in some beach time at Silivri Sahili and Suma Beach. Do some cultural sightseeing at Sultanahmet District and Topkapi Palace. And it doesn't end there: get engrossed in the history at Hagia Sophia Museum / Church (Ayasofya), take in the spiritual surroundings of Sultan Ahmed Mosque, look for gifts at Mısır Çarşısı, and browse the eclectic array of goods at Kapali Carsi.

To see photos, reviews, ratings, and tourist information, use the Istanbul route tool .

If you are flying in from India, the closest major airports are Atatürk International Airport and Sabiha Gökçen International Airport. In March, daily temperatures in Istanbul can reach 14°C, while at night they dip to 14°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 18th (Mon) to allow time to travel back home.
