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.
Museum-lovers will get to explore Topkapi Palace and Hagia Sophia Museum / Church (Ayasofya). Sultan Ahmed Mosque and Suleymaniye Cami will appeal to history buffs. There's still lots to do: admire the striking features of Basilica Cistern, steep yourself in history at Historic Areas of Istanbul, take in panoramic vistas at Galata Tower, and explore the world behind art at Kariye Museum (The Chora Church).

To see more things to do, ratings, traveler tips, and more tourist information, refer to the Istanbul holiday planner.

In July, daytime highs in Istanbul are 34°C, while nighttime lows are 23°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 22nd (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
