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.
Spend the 16th (Sun) floating through the air with a balloon tour. There's much more to do: get engrossed in the history at Hagia Sophia Museum / Church (Ayasofya), explore the world behind art at Kariye Museum (The Chora Church), delve into the distant past at Basilica Cistern, and take a stroll through Ortakoy.

In September, daily temperatures in Istanbul can reach 26°C, while at night they dip to 26°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 16th (Sun) to allow time to travel back home.
