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.
Museum-lovers will get to explore Kariye Museum (The Chora Church) and Istanbul Archaeological Museums. Shop till you drop at Istiklal Street and Mısır Çarşısı. Go for a jaunt from Istanbul to Yalova to see Erikli Waterfall about 1h 25 min away. The adventure continues: take in the spiritual surroundings of Rustem Pasha Mosque, contemplate the long history of Historic Areas of Istanbul, pause for some serene contemplation at Santa Maria Draperis Church, and stroll through Suma Beach.

To find other places to visit, traveler tips, reviews, and tourist information, read Istanbul route planner.

If you are flying in from Italy, the closest major airports are Atatürk International Airport and Sabiha Gökçen International Airport. In August, plan for daily highs up to 34°C, and evening lows to 25°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 24th (Fri) to allow enough time to travel back home.
