Istanbul

— 5 nights

Queen of Cities

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 Istanbul Modern and Solar Plajı. Do some cultural sightseeing at Hagia Sophia and Suleymaniye Cami . Step out of Istanbul to go to Yalova and see Erikli Waterfall, which is approximately 1h 25 min away. There's still lots to do: appreciate the extensive heritage of Sultanahmet District, admire the landmark architecture of Basilica Cistern, explore the world behind art at Chora Museum, and enjoy the sand and surf at Suma Beach.

To find photos, traveler tips, more things to do, and tourist information, refer to the Istanbul route planner.

If you are flying in from Egypt, the closest major aiports are İstanbul Airport, İstanbul Atatürk Airport and Istanbul Sabiha Gökçen International Airport. Expect a daytime high around 34°C in August, and nighttime lows around 25°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 15th (Wed) early enough to travel back home.
