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.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Eminonu Square and Istanbul Arkeoloji Muzesi. Visit Yeni Camii and Eyup Sultan Mosque for their historical value. Change things up with these side-trips from Istanbul: Altinkemer Local Beach (in Karamursel), Derekoy Kilisesi (in Mudanya) and Sardala Koyu (in Kandira). Spend the 25th (Sun) floating through the air with a balloon tour. Next up on the itinerary: take a stroll through Beyoglu, take in the spiritual surroundings of Rustem Pasha Mosque, tour the pleasant surroundings at Aqua Beach, and appreciate the extensive heritage of Pierre Loti Tepesi.

If you are flying in from Azerbaijan, the closest major airports are Atatürk International Airport and Sabiha Gökçen International Airport. August in Istanbul sees daily highs of 34°C and lows of 25°C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 26th (Mon) to allow time to travel back home.
