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.
Do some cultural sightseeing at Hagia Sophia Museum and Chora Museum. There's still lots to do: get engrossed in the history at Topkapi Palace, admire the striking features of Dolmabahce Palace, take in the architecture and atmosphere at The Ecumenical Patriarchate, and explore the world behind art at Istanbul Modern.

To see where to stay, ratings, photos, and more tourist information, read our Istanbul day trip app.

In March, daytime highs in Istanbul are 14°C, while nighttime lows are 14°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 14th (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
