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.
Spend the 30th (Thu) floating through the air with a balloon tour. There's lots more to do: take an in-depth tour of Hagia Sophia Museum / Church (Ayasofya), explore the world behind art at Istanbul Modern Museum, wander the streets of Ortakoy, and explore the ancient world of Basilica Cistern.

To see ratings, photos, reviews, and more tourist information, read our Istanbul trip site .

If you are flying in from Kuwait, the closest major airports are Atatürk International Airport and Sabiha Gökçen International Airport. In August, plan for daily highs up to 34°C, and evening lows to 25°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 30th (Thu) so you can travel back home.
