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.
Istanbul is known for historic sites, museums, shopping, nature, and nightlife. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: get engrossed in the history at Hagia Sophia Museum / Church (Ayasofya), explore the ancient world of Basilica Cistern, steep yourself in history at Galata Tower, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Suleymaniye Cami .

For other places to visit, more things to do, maps, and tourist information, read our Istanbul planner .

If you are flying in from Saudi Arabia, the closest major airports are Atatürk International Airport and Sabiha Gökçen International Airport. In April, daily temperatures in Istanbul can reach 20°C, while at night they dip to 9°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 8th (Sun) early enough to travel back home.
