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.
Get some cultural insight at Kariye Museum (The Chora Church) and Topkapi Palace. Get outdoors at Dalia Beach and Suma Beach. Next up on the itinerary: steep yourself in history at Basilica Cistern, admire the masterpieces at Istanbul Modern Museum, take in the spiritual surroundings of Sultan Ahmed Mosque, and wander the streets of Ortakoy.

To find other places to visit, where to stay, ratings, and other tourist information, read Istanbul online itinerary creator.

If you are flying in from Egypt, the closest major airports are Atatürk International Airport and Sabiha Gökçen International Airport. In July, plan for daily highs up to 35°C, and evening lows to 25°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 6th (Thu) early enough to travel back home.
