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.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Eriklitepe Tabiat Parki and Jennifer's Hamam. Your itinerary includes some good beach time at Altinkemer Local Beach and Aqua Beach. Change things up with these side-trips from Istanbul: Delmece Yaylasi (in Cinarcik) and Sardala Koyu (in Kandira). And it doesn't end there: walk around Gulhane Park, soar above the sights with a balloon tour, get engrossed in the history at Istanbul Arkeoloji Muzesi, and examine the collection at Rahmi M. Koc Museum.

If you are flying in from Saudi Arabia, the closest major airports are Istanbul Airport and Sabiha Gökçen International Airport. Expect a daytime high around 34°C in July, and nighttime lows around 23°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 26th (Fri) to allow enough time to travel back home.
