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.
Istanbul is known for sightseeing, historic sites, museums, shopping, and nature. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: admire the striking features of Hagia Sophia Museum / Church (Ayasofya), get engrossed in the history at Topkapi Palace, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Sultan Ahmed Mosque, and browse the eclectic array of goods at Grand Bazaar (Kapali Carsi).

To find maps, photos, more things to do, and more tourist information, refer to the Istanbul itinerary builder.

Use the Route module to find suitable travel options from your home destination to Istanbul. Expect a daytime high around 26°C in May, and nighttime lows around 16°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 18th (Thu) to allow time to travel back home.
