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 Florya Sahil Parkı and Suma Beach. Appreciate the collections at Kariye Museum (The Chora Church) and Topkapi Palace. Take a break from Istanbul with a short trip to Erikli Waterfall in Yalova, about 1h 25 min away. There's still lots to do: enjoy the sand and surf at Solar Plajı, take in the spiritual surroundings of Suleymaniye Cami , tour the pleasant surroundings at Dalia Beach, and delve into the distant past at Basilica Cistern.

If you are flying in from Egypt, the closest major airports are Atatürk International Airport and Sabiha Gökçen International Airport. Expect a daytime high around 34°C in July, and nighttime lows around 23°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 7th (Sat) to allow time to travel back home.
