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 explore the less-touristy side of things at Chora Museum and Istanbul Archaeological Museum. Little Hagia Sophia and Historic Areas of Istanbul will appeal to history buffs. Go for a jaunt from Istanbul to Yalova to see Erikli Waterfall about 1h 25 min away. There's still lots to do: admire the striking features of Eyüp Sultan Mosque, pause for some serene contemplation at Santa Maria Draperis Church, take in the spiritual surroundings of Rustem Pasha Mosque, and make a trip to Istiklal Street.

For other places to visit, where to stay, more things to do, and more tourist information, read Istanbul journey planner.

If you are flying in from Italy, the closest major aiports are Istanbul Airport, Atatürk International Airport and Sabiha Gökçen International Airport. Expect a daytime high around °C in August, and nighttime lows around °C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 24th (Fri) so you can travel back home.
