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 Solar Plajı. Little Hagia Sophia and Santa Maria Draperis Church 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: take an in-depth tour of Istanbul Archaeological Museum, contemplate the long history of Historic Areas of Istanbul, kick back and relax at Florya Sahil Parkı, and make a trip to Istiklal Street.

To find where to stay, other places to visit, ratings, and more tourist information, read Istanbul journey planner.

If you are flying in from Italy, the closest major aiports are Istanbul Airport and Sabiha Gökçen International Airport. Expect a daytime high around 34°C in August, and nighttime lows around 25°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 24th (Fri) so you can travel back home.
