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.
Kids will appreciate attractions like Hagia Sophia Museum / Church (Ayasofya) and Dolmabahce Palace. Step out of Istanbul with an excursion to Delmece Yaylasi in Cinarcik--about 1h 15 min away. There's still lots to do: admire the landmark architecture of Basilica Cistern, take a stroll through Ortakoy, take in the spiritual surroundings of Sultan Ahmed Mosque, and hunt for treasures at Kapali Carsi.

Plan my trip to Istanbul with suggested itineraries provided by Inspirock.

If you are flying in from Saudi Arabia, the closest major airports are Istanbul Airport and Sabiha Gökçen International Airport. In July, daytime highs in Istanbul are 34°C, while nighttime lows are 23°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 12th (Mon) early enough to travel back home.
