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.
Spend the 30th (Sun) floating through the air with a balloon tour. Next up on the itinerary: admire the landmark architecture of Hagia Sophia Museum, delve into the distant past at Basilica Cistern, take in the spiritual surroundings of Sultan Ahmed Mosque, and explore the world behind art at Chora Museum.

For where to stay, traveler tips, maps, and tourist information, read our Istanbul trip planner.

In December in Istanbul, expect temperatures between °C during the day and °C at night. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 30th (Sun) so you can travel back home.
