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.
Kids will appreciate attractions like Hagia Sophia Museum and Ortakoy. You'll enjoy a bit of beach vacationing at Aqua Beach and Dalia Beach. On the 4th (Sat), spend a fun day on foot with Walking tours. Spend the 6th (Mon) floating through the air with a balloon tour. There's much more to do: appreciate the extensive heritage of Sultanahmet District, take an in-depth tour of Topkapi Palace, wander the streets of Taksim Square, and hunt for treasures at Kapali Carsi.
