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.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Delmece Yaylasi and Istiklal Street. Head to Mısır Çarşısı and Egyptian Bazaarfor plenty of shopping. Take a break from Istanbul with a short trip to Erikli Waterfall in Yalova, about 1h 25 min away. There's much more to do: get engrossed in the history at Kariye Museum (The Chora Church), kick back and relax at Solar Plajı, stroll through Suma Beach, and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Rustem Pasha Mosque.

If you are flying in from United Arab Emirates, the closest major airports are Atatürk International Airport and Sabiha Gökçen International Airport. In July, daytime highs in Istanbul are 34°C, while nighttime lows are 23°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 11th (Wed) to allow enough time to travel back home.
