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.
Family-friendly places like Hagia Sophia Museum / Church (Ayasofya) and Suleymaniye Cami will thrill your kids. There's still lots to do: delve into the distant past at Basilica Cistern, wander the streets of Ortakoy, enjoy breathtaking views from Galata Tower, and explore the world behind art at Istanbul Modern Museum.

For ratings, where to stay, maps, and tourist information, you can read our Istanbul trip builder website .

If you are flying in from Israel, the closest major airports are Atatürk International Airport and Sabiha Gökçen International Airport. In August, daily temperatures in Istanbul can reach 34°C, while at night they dip to 25°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 8th (Wed) early enough to travel back home.
