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.
Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Grand Bazaar (Kapali Carsi) and Egyptian Bazaar. Get outdoors at Florya Sahil Parkı and Aqua Beach. There's much more to do: kick back and relax at Suma Beach, delve into the distant past at Basilica Cistern, get engrossed in the history at Topkapi Palace, and wander the streets of Sultanahmet District.

To find maps, photos, other places to visit, and other tourist information, refer to the Istanbul trip builder app .

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airports are Atatürk International Airport and Sabiha Gökçen International Airport. In June, plan for daily highs up to 79°F, and evening lows to 63°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 15th (Fri) so you can travel back home.
