Queen of Cities

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 inner history buff will appreciate Hagia Sophia and Sultanahmet District. For shopping fun, head to Kapali Carsi or Anatolian Carpet Shop. Spend the 20th (Sat) exploring nature at Bentler Tabiat Parki. There's still lots to do: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Sultan Ahmed Mosque, take a stroll through Ortakoy, get engrossed in the history at Topkapi Palace, and contemplate the long history of Historic Areas of Istanbul.

To see photos, maps, other places to visit, and more tourist information, you can read our Istanbul vacation app.

If you are flying in from Egypt, the closest major aiports are İstanbul Airport, İstanbul Atatürk Airport and Istanbul Sabiha Gökçen International Airport. In July, plan for daily highs up to 34°C, and evening lows to 23°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 21st (Sun) so you can travel back home.
