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: take an in-depth tour of Hagia Sophia Museum / Church (Ayasofya), take in the spiritual surroundings of Sultan Ahmed Mosque, hunt for treasures at Kapali Carsi, and enjoy breathtaking views from Galata Tower.

For more things to do, traveler tips, ratings, and other tourist information, refer to the Istanbul trip maker site .

If you are flying in from Egypt, the closest major airports are Atatürk International Airport and Sabiha Gökçen International Airport. In December in Istanbul, expect temperatures between 7°C during the day and 7°C at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 10th (Mon) early enough to travel back home.
