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.
Your inner history buff will appreciate Little Hagia Sophia and Yeni Camii. You'll explore and learn at Rahmi M. Koc Museum and Turkish and Islamic Arts Museum (Turk ve Islam Eserleri Muzesi). Venture out of the city with trips to Bursa (Green Tomb, Ulu Cami, & more) and Aya Yorgi Church (in Buyukada). There's still lots to do: contemplate the waterfront views at Halic, explore the galleries of Heritage Nomadic Art Gallery, take in the local highlights with Walking tours, and wander the streets of Beyoglu.

To find where to stay, reviews, and other tourist information, you can read our Istanbul road trip planning tool .

If you are flying in from Bosnia and Herzegovina, the closest major airports are Istanbul Airport and Sabiha Gökçen International Airport. In November in Istanbul, expect temperatures between 17°C during the day and 17°C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 1st (Sun) early enough to travel back home.
