Queen of Cities

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 and Basilica Cistern. The adventure continues: take in the spiritual surroundings of Sultan Ahmed Mosque, take an in-depth tour of Topkapi Palace, explore the world behind art at Istanbul Modern, and steep yourself in history at Historic Areas of Istanbul.

To find other places to visit, reviews, where to stay, and more tourist information, refer to the Istanbul trip planning site.

Van to Istanbul is an approximately 5.5-hour flight. You can also drive. Expect a daytime high around 25°C in May, and nighttime lows around 15°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 25th (Mon) so you can travel back home.

Rich in culture and customs and brimming with hospitality, natural beauty, and historical heritage, Turkey serves as a crossroads between Asia and Europe. The landmass known as Anatolia on which Turkey thrives has been home to numerous civilizations and their faiths and cultures, as attested by the 13 World Heritage Sites and countless religious sites you'll find here. Relive the ancient world through the ruins, customs, and traditions that are among the nation's most precious heritages. Adventure-seekers have plenty do to here, including mountain climbing, scuba diving, rafting, and skiing. A holiday to Turkey is incomplete without a cup of Turkish coffee, the pinnacle of Turkish cuisine inscribed on the Intangible Cultural Heritage List.
