Istanbul

— 7 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.
Istanbul is known for historic sites, museums, and shopping. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: admire the striking features of Hagia Sophia, take an in-depth tour of Galata Tower, explore the ancient world of Basilica Cistern, and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Sultan Ahmed Mosque.

For photos, other places to visit, more things to do, and other tourist information, you can read our Istanbul trip planner.

Expect a daytime high around 7°C in December, and nighttime lows around 7°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 30th (Sun) so you can travel back home.
