Istanbul is known for museums, historic sites, and shopping. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: take in the spiritual surroundings of Sultan Ahmed Mosque, wander the streets of Ortakoy, walk around Emirgan Park, and see the interesting displays at Rahmi M. Koc Museum.

To see photos, other places to visit, reviews, and tourist information, use the Istanbul day trip tool.

Colombo, Sri Lanka to Istanbul is an approximately 14-hour flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll gain 2.5 hours traveling from Colombo to Istanbul. Expect much colder temperatures when traveling from Colombo in April; daily highs in Istanbul reach °C and lows reach °C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 24th (Sat) to allow time to travel to Goreme.
