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.
Family-friendly places like Hagia Sophia Museum / Church (Ayasofya) and Basilica Cistern will thrill your kids. There's lots more to do: take in the spiritual surroundings of Sultan Ahmed Mosque, wander the streets of Ortakoy, take an in-depth tour of Kariye Museum (The Chora Church), and take in panoramic vistas at Galata Tower.

To find photos, other places to visit, maps, and more tourist information, go to the Istanbul travel route builder website .

If you are flying in from Egypt, the closest major airports are Atatürk International Airport and Sabiha Gökçen International Airport. January in Istanbul sees daily highs of 10°C and lows of 10°C at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 30th (Wed) early enough to travel back home.
