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.
You'll explore and learn at Kariye Museum (The Chora Church) and Hagia Sophia Museum / Church (Ayasofya). Get some cultural insight at Ortakoy and Sultan Ahmed Mosque. There's lots more to do: get engrossed in the history at Topkapi Palace, contemplate the long history of Basilica Cistern, admire the masterpieces at Istanbul Modern Museum, and stroll through Solar Plajı.

For more things to do, maps, other places to visit, and more tourist information, use the Istanbul holiday planner .

If you are flying in from Kuwait, the closest major airports are Atatürk International Airport and Sabiha Gökçen International Airport. In October, daytime highs in Istanbul are 28°C, while nighttime lows are 26°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 20th (Sat) to allow time to travel back home.
