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.
Get some historical perspective at Golden Horn and Basilica Cistern. For shopping fun, head to Grand Bazaar (Kapali Carsi) or Adnan and Hasan Carpet and Kilim Store. Next up on the itinerary: take an in-depth tour of Topkapi Palace, wander the streets of Ortakoy, explore the world behind art at Kariye Museum (The Chora Church), and take in the spiritual surroundings of Sultan Ahmed Mosque.

For other places to visit, reviews, and other tourist information, refer to the Istanbul road trip planning app .

If you are flying in from Iraq, the closest major airports are Atatürk International Airport and Sabiha Gökçen International Airport. Expect a daytime high around 11°C in February, and nighttime lows around 11°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 28th (Wed) to allow enough time to travel back home.
