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.
Get in touch with nature at Bosphorus Strait and Bentler Tabiat Parki. For shopping fun, head to Kapali Carsi or Jennifer's Hamam. There's lots more to do: browse the exhibits of Hagia Sophia Museum, take in the spiritual surroundings of Sultan Ahmed Mosque, take a stroll through Istiklal Street, and admire the striking features of Basilica Cistern.

To see more things to do, other places to visit, ratings, and other tourist information, you can read our Istanbul online day trip planner.

Expect a daytime high around 26°C in September, and nighttime lows around 26°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 26th (Thu) to allow enough time to travel back home.
