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.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Florya Sahil Parkı and Dalia Beach. Family-friendly places like Suma Beach and Sultanahmet District will thrill your kids. When in Istanbul, make a side trip to see Erikli Waterfall in Yalova, approximately 1h 25 min away. There's still lots to do: kick back and relax at Solar Plajı, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Suleymaniye Cami , stroll through Aqua Beach, and hunt for treasures at Kapali Carsi.

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airports are Atatürk International Airport and Sabiha Gökçen International Airport. Expect a daytime high around 85°F in August, and nighttime lows around 71°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 31st (Fri) early enough to travel back home.
