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.
Take a break from the city and head to Dalia Beach and Solar Plajı. Do some cultural sightseeing at Ortakoy and Sultan Ahmed Mosque. The adventure continues: get engrossed in the history at Topkapi Palace, browse the eclectic array of goods at Grand Bazaar (Kapali Carsi), get a taste of the local shopping with Istiklal Street, and admire the masterpieces at Istanbul Modern Museum.

Lahore, Pakistan to Istanbul is an approximately 7.5-hour flight. You can also do a combination of flight and bus. You'll gain 3 hours traveling from Lahore to Istanbul due to the time zone difference. Traveling from Lahore in March, expect nights in Istanbul to be about the same, around 14°C, while days are colder, around 14°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 11th (Sun) early enough to travel to Goreme.

Goreme, Cappadocia

Goreme ©
Famed for its landscape of unusually shaped stone formations and churches cut into the natural rocks, Goreme sits in the central part of the country, an area originally settled during Roman times.
Escape the urban bustle at Cemal Ranch Horse Riding Center and Goreme National Park. Get some cultural insight at Cappadocia Cave Dwellings and Naile Art Gallery- Ebru Art Center. There's still lots to do: soar above the sights with a balloon tour and stop by Alaturca Carpet.

Make your Goreme itinerary with Inspirock to find out what to see and where to go.

Traveling by combination of flight and taxi from Istanbul to Goreme takes 4.5 hours. Alternatively, you can do a combination of bus, flight, and taxi; or drive. Plan for slightly colder nights when traveling from Istanbul in March since evenings lows in Goreme dip to 1°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 13th (Tue) so you can travel back home.
