Istanbul

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.
Explore hidden gems such as Food Tours and Gulhane Park. There's lots more to do: take an in-depth tour of Hagia Sophia Museum / Church (Ayasofya), explore the ancient world of Basilica Cistern, take in the spiritual surroundings of Sultan Ahmed Mosque, and admire the landmark architecture of Dolmabahce Palace.

For more things to do, photos, reviews, and other tourist information, read Istanbul trip planner .

If you are flying in from Kuwait, the closest major airports are Atatürk International Airport and Sabiha Gökçen International Airport. In June, daytime highs in Istanbul are 30°C, while nighttime lows are 20°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 25th (Mon) early enough to travel back home.
