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.
Step out of the city life by going to Balloon Rides and Halic. Hagia Sophia Museum / Church (Ayasofya) and Basilica Cistern are good opportunities to explore the local culture. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Istanbul: Bursa (Ulu Cami & Green Tomb), Basiskele (Uzuntarla Tabiat Parki & Eriklitepe Tabiat Parki) and Aya Yorgi Church (in Buyukada). There's much more to do: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Suleymaniye Cami , enjoy the sand and surf at Asaf Family Beach, wander the streets of Sultanahmet District, and get engrossed in the history at Istanbul Arkeoloji Muzesi.

To find reviews, traveler tips, where to stay, and more tourist information, use the Istanbul route planner.

In August in Istanbul, expect temperatures between 34°C during the day and 25°C at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 28th (Wed) so you can travel back home.
