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.
Head to Grand Bazaar (Kapali Carsi) and Istiklal Streetfor some retail therapy. Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Golden Horn and Basilica Cistern. There's still lots to do: take an in-depth tour of Hagia Sophia Museum / Church (Ayasofya), wander the streets of Ortakoy, explore the world behind art at Istanbul Modern Museum, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Suleymaniye Cami .

If you are flying in from United Kingdom, the closest major airports are Atatürk International Airport and Sabiha Gökçen International Airport. In January in Istanbul, expect temperatures between 10°C during the day and 10°C at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 23rd (Tue) early enough to travel back home.
