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.
Museum-lovers will appreciate Hagia Sophia Museum / Church (Ayasofya) and Rumeli Fortress. For shopping fun, head to Kapali Carsi or American Hastanesi Sanat Galerisi. There's still lots to do: contemplate the waterfront views at Bosphorus Strait, enjoy the sand and surf at Dalia Beach, take a stroll through Ortakoy, and get engrossed in the history at Topkapi Palace.

For traveler tips, more things to do, maps, and more tourist information, refer to the Istanbul travel planner.

If you are flying in from Lebanon, the closest major airports are Istanbul 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 17th (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
