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.
Istanbul is known for museums, historic sites, shopping, nature, and nightlife. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: take an in-depth tour of Hagia Sophia Museum / Church (Ayasofya), explore the world behind art at Kariye Museum (The Chora Church), admire the striking features of Basilica Cistern, and browse the eclectic array of goods at Kapali Carsi.

To see other places to visit, maps, ratings, and tourist information, go to the Istanbul trip itinerary planner.

If you are flying in from Egypt, the closest major airports are Istanbul Airport and Sabiha Gökçen International Airport. In February in Istanbul, expect temperatures between 11°C during the day and 11°C at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 23rd (Sun) so you can travel back home.
