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.
Your itinerary includes some good beach time at Florya Sahil Parkı and Solar Plajı. Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Golden Horn and Hagia Sophia Museum / Church (Ayasofya). There's lots more to do: kick back and relax at Suma Beach, explore the world behind art at Kariye Museum (The Chora Church), take a stroll through Sultanahmet District, and stroll through Dalia Beach.

To see traveler tips, where to stay, photos, and other tourist information, you can read our Istanbul trip itinerary builder.

If you are flying in from Egypt, the closest major airports are Atatürk International Airport and Sabiha Gökçen International Airport. In February, plan for daily highs up to 11°C, and evening lows to 4°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 16th (Thu) so you can travel back home.
