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, steep yourself in history at Galata Tower, and admire the landmark architecture of Dolmabahce Palace.

To see maps, photos, reviews, and other tourist information, go to the Istanbul holiday planning app .

If you are flying in from Egypt, the closest major airports are Atatürk International Airport and Sabiha Gökçen International Airport. In January, daytime highs in Istanbul are 10°C, while nighttime lows are 10°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 31st (Wed) to allow enough time to travel back home.
