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.
Escape the urban bustle at Bentler Tabiat Parki and Bosphorus Strait. Head to Kapali Carsi and Jennifer's Hamamfor some retail therapy. There's still lots to do: take an in-depth tour of Hagia Sophia Museum / Church (Ayasofya), hike along Ibb Halic Nedim Parki, take a stroll through Istiklal Street, and delve into the distant past at Basilica Cistern.

To find other places to visit, where to stay, photos, and tourist information, read Istanbul online day trip planner .

In September, plan for daily highs up to 26°C, and evening lows to 26°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 26th (Thu) early enough to travel back home.
