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.
Attractions like Hagia Sophia Museum / Church (Ayasofya) and Kapali Carsi make great kid-friendly stops. There's lots more to do: delve into the distant past at Basilica Cistern, take in the spiritual surroundings of Sultan Ahmed Mosque, take in panoramic vistas at Galata Tower, and explore the world behind art at Kariye Museum (The Chora Church).

To find photos, more things to do, reviews, and other tourist information, refer to the Istanbul trip planning site .

In August in Istanbul, expect temperatures between 34°C during the day and 25°C at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 11th (Sat) to allow enough time to travel back home.
