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 in touch with nature at Golden Horn and Luxury Istanbul Day Tours. For shopping fun, head to Grand Bazaar (Kapali Carsi) or Istiklal Street. There's still lots to do: wander the streets of Ortakoy, delve into the distant past at Basilica Cistern, take in the spiritual surroundings of Sultan Ahmed Mosque, and take an in-depth tour of Kariye Museum (The Chora Church).

To see traveler tips, maps, photos, and more tourist information, go 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, daily temperatures in Istanbul can reach 10°C, while at night they dip to 10°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 27th (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
