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 visit kid-friendly attractions like Hagia Sophia Museum / Church (Ayasofya) and Dolmabahce Palace. There's lots more to do: explore the ancient world of Basilica Cistern, admire the masterpieces at Kariye Museum (The Chora Church), hunt for treasures at Kapali Carsi, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Sultan Ahmed Mosque.

For other places to visit, where to stay, traveler tips, and more tourist information, read Istanbul online trip maker .

If you are flying in from United Arab Emirates, the closest major airports are Istanbul Airport and Sabiha Gökçen International Airport. Expect a daytime high around 28°C in October, and nighttime lows around 26°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 26th (Sat) so you can travel back home.
