Istanbul

— 42 nights

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.
Hagia Sophia and Basilica Cistern are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Head to Kapali Carsi and Dolmabahce Sanat Galerisifor plenty of shopping. Venture out of the city with trips to Buyukada (Buyukada Hesed Leavraam Synagogue & Aya Yorgi Church), Yuruyen Kosk (in Yalova) and Ulu Cami (in Bursa). On the 10th (Thu), spend a fun day on foot with Walking tours. There's still lots to do: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Sultan Ahmed Mosque, admire the landmark architecture of Dolmabahce Palace, admire the masterpieces at Chora Museum, and take a stroll through Taksim Square.

For traveler tips, where to stay, photos, and more tourist information, refer to the Istanbul road trip planning tool.

If you are flying in from Kuwait, the closest major aiports are İstanbul Airport, İstanbul Atatürk Airport and Istanbul Sabiha Gökçen International Airport. In May, daily temperatures in Istanbul can reach 25°C, while at night they dip to 15°C.
