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.
Golden Horn and Sultanahmet District are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Take a break from the city and head to Luxury Istanbul Day Tours and Denden Yachts. There's much more to do: admire the striking features of Basilica Cistern, take in panoramic vistas at Galata Tower, admire the masterpieces at Kariye Museum (The Chora Church), and take an in-depth tour of Hagia Sophia Museum / Church (Ayasofya).

For reviews, maps, and tourist information, you can read our Istanbul trip planner .

If you are flying in from Spain, the closest major airports are Atatürk International Airport and Sabiha Gökçen International Airport. March in Istanbul sees daily highs of 14°C and lows of 14°C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 23rd (Fri) early enough to travel back home.
