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.
Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Golden Horn and Sultan Ahmed Mosque. Kids will enjoy Selale Parkuru and Kapali Carsi. And it doesn't end there: get engrossed in the history at Topkapi Palace, identify plant and animal life at Polonezkoy Tabiat Parki, enjoy the sand and surf at Dalia Beach, and stroll through Suma Beach.

To find photos, traveler tips, reviews, and other tourist information, read our Istanbul trip planner .

If you are flying in from United Arab Emirates, the closest major airports are Atatürk International Airport and Sabiha Gökçen International Airport. Expect a daytime high around 34°C in July, and nighttime lows around 23°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 12th (Thu) early enough to travel back home.
