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.
Kick off your visit on the 23rd (Wed): contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Sultan Ahmed Mosque, then take a stroll through Sultanahmet District, then explore the ancient world of Basilica Cistern, and finally take a stroll through Ortakoy. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the 24th (Thu): appreciate the history behind Sultanahmet Square, take an in-depth tour of Hagia Sophia Museum / Church (Ayasofya), then take an in-depth tour of Topkapi Palace, and finally soak in style at Turkish baths.

To find where to stay and tourist information, refer to the Istanbul trip planner.

If you are flying in from Kuwait, the closest major airports are Atatürk International Airport and Sabiha Gökçen International Airport. In January in Istanbul, expect temperatures between 10°C during the day and 10°C at night. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 24th (Thu) so you can travel back home.
