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 historic sites, museums, shopping, nature, and nightlife. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: take an in-depth tour of Hagia Sophia Museum / Church (Ayasofya), enjoy breathtaking views from Galata Tower, explore the world behind art at Kariye Museum (The Chora Church), and wander the streets of Sultanahmet District.

To see where to stay, other places to visit, photos, and more tourist information, go to the Istanbul trip planner.

If you are flying in from Egypt, the closest major airports are Istanbul Airport and Sabiha Gökçen International Airport. In August, daytime highs in Istanbul are 34°C, while nighttime lows are 25°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 27th (Tue) so you can travel back home.
