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.
You'll visit kid-friendly attractions like Hagia Sophia Museum / Church (Ayasofya) and Suleymaniye Cami . The adventure continues: delve into the distant past at Basilica Cistern, appreciate the extensive heritage of Sultanahmet District, contemplate the long history of Galata Tower, and get engrossed in the history at Topkapi Palace.

To find photos, more things to do, reviews, and more tourist information, you can read our Istanbul trip planner .

If you are flying in from Egypt, the closest major airports are Atatürk International Airport and Sabiha Gökçen International Airport. In September, daytime highs in Istanbul are 26°C, while nighttime lows are 26°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 15th (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
