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 historic sites, museums, shopping, nature, and nightlife. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: get engrossed in the history at Hagia Sophia Museum / Church (Ayasofya), admire the striking features of Dolmabahce Palace, take in the spiritual surroundings of Sultan Ahmed Mosque, and hunt for treasures at Kapali Carsi.

For maps, reviews, photos, and other tourist information, read our Istanbul trip itinerary planner .

If you are flying in from Algeria, the closest major airports are Istanbul Airport and Sabiha Gökçen International Airport. In September in Istanbul, expect temperatures between 26°C during the day and 26°C at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 9th (Wed) to allow enough time to travel back home.
