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.
Take a break from the city and head to Bosphorus Strait and Selale Parkuru. There's lots more to do: get engrossed in the history at Hagia Sophia Museum, admire the striking features of Ayasofya Hurrem Sultan Hamam, explore the wealth of natural beauty at Bentler Tabiat Parki, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Sultan Ahmed Mosque.

To find more things to do, photos, maps, and tourist information, read our Istanbul trip planner.

Izmir to Istanbul is an approximately 2.5- hour flight. You can also do a combination of flight and shuttle; or drive. When traveling from Izmir in March, plan for somewhat warmer days and much hotter nights in Istanbul: temperatures range from 14°C by day to 14°C at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 16th (Mon) so you can travel back home.
