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.
Start off your visit on the 6th (Mon): admire the masterpieces at Kariye Museum (The Chora Church), admire the landmark architecture of Basilica Cistern, then hunt for treasures at Kapali Carsi, then take in the spiritual surroundings of Suleymaniye Cami , and finally take in panoramic vistas at Galata Tower. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the next day: take an in-depth tour of Topkapi Palace, get engrossed in the history at Hagia Sophia Museum / Church (Ayasofya), then get to know the fascinating history of Sultanahmet District, and finally contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Sultan Ahmed Mosque.

To see other places to visit, ratings, and other tourist information, go to the Istanbul attractions site .

If you are flying in from Kuwait, the closest major airports are Atatürk International Airport and Sabiha Gökçen International Airport. In May, daytime highs in Istanbul are 25°C, while nighttime lows are 15°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 7th (Tue) early enough to travel back home.
