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 discover tucked-away gems like Beyoglu and Ortakoy. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Istanbul: Yalova (Erikli Waterfall, Yuruyen Kosk, &more), Izmit (Yeni Cuma Camii, Kasr-i Humayun - Saray Muze, &more) and Ataturk Kosku (in Termal). On the 26th (Wed), spend a fun day on foot with Walking tours. There's much more to do: take an in-depth tour of Chora Museum, pause for some photo ops at Sultanahmet Square, admire the striking features of Rustem Pasha Mosque, and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Tomb of Joshua.

For ratings, reviews, more things to do, and other tourist information, go to the Istanbul trip planner.

In December, plan for daily highs up to °C, and evening lows to °C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 3rd (Thu) to allow enough time to travel back home.
