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.
Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Kapali Carsi and Mısır Çarşısı. The adventure continues: admire the striking features of Hagia Sophia Museum / Church (Ayasofya), wander the streets of Ortakoy, take an in-depth tour of Topkapi Palace, and delve into the distant past at Basilica Cistern.

To find traveler tips, other places to visit, more things to do, and more tourist information, use the Istanbul journey planner .

If you are flying in from Kuwait, the closest major airports are Atatürk International Airport and Sabiha Gökçen International Airport. In August, plan for daily highs up to 34°C, and evening lows to 25°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 25th (Sat) to allow time to travel back home.
