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.
Golden Horn and Sultan Ahmed Mosque are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Head to Grand Bazaar (Kapali Carsi) and Istiklal Streetfor some retail therapy. There's much more to do: get engrossed in the history at Topkapi Palace, examine the collection at Rahmi M. Koç Museum, take a stroll through Sultanahmet District, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Hagia Sophia Museum / Church (Ayasofya).

To see more things to do, where to stay, ratings, and other tourist information, use the Istanbul vacation planning website .

If you are flying in from Egypt, the closest major airports are Atatürk International Airport and Sabiha Gökçen International Airport. In January, daily temperatures in Istanbul can reach 10°C, while at night they dip to 10°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 26th (Fri) early enough to travel back home.
