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 museums, historic sites, and shopping. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: take an in-depth tour of Hagia Sophia Museum / Church (Ayasofya), take in panoramic vistas at Galata Tower, admire the masterpieces at Kariye Museum (The Chora Church), and admire the landmark architecture of Basilica Cistern.

The first Ottoman capital and a World Heritage Site, Bursa is known as "The Royal Springs" for its famous hot mineral waters--though it offers much more than your typical spa destination.
Venture out of the city with trips to Uludag National Park (Kardanadam & Uludag Ski Resort). There's still lots to do: admire the landmark architecture of Ulu Cami, stop by Muradiye Camii, take in the spiritual surroundings of Isabey CAMii, and fly down the slopes at Uludag Ski Center.

For traveler tips, photos, more things to do, and tourist information, read Bursa trip itinerary planning site .

You can drive from Istanbul to Bursa in 2 hours. Other options are to ride a ferry; or take a bus. Traveling from Istanbul in February, expect little chillier with lows of 7°C in Bursa. On the 15th (Sat), wrap the sightseeing up by early afternoon so you can travel back home.
