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.
Family-friendly places like Hagia Sophia Museum / Church (Ayasofya) and Kapali Carsi will thrill your kids. Spend the 28th (Tue) floating through the air with a balloon tour. The adventure continues: steep yourself in history at Basilica Cistern, admire the landmark architecture of Dolmabahce Palace, take in panoramic vistas at Galata Tower, and take an in-depth tour of Topkapi Palace.

To find maps, photos, other places to visit, and tourist information, you can read our Istanbul tour itinerary 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. Finish your sightseeing early on the 28th (Tue) to allow enough time to travel back home.
