Istanbul

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.
Step off the beaten path and head to Golden Horn and Solar Plajı. Escape the urban bustle at Florya Sahil Parkı and Dalia Beach. Take a break from Istanbul with a short trip to Karaca Arboretum in Yalova, about 1h 20 min away. There's lots more to do: take a stroll through Ortakoy, get engrossed in the history at Istanbul Archaeological Museums, take in the spiritual surroundings of Sultan Ahmed Mosque, and stroll through Suma Beach.

If you are flying in from Saudi Arabia, the closest major airports are Atatürk International Airport and Sabiha Gökçen International Airport. In March, daytime highs in Istanbul are 14°C, while nighttime lows are 6°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 14th (Fri) so you can travel back home.
