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.
Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Hagia Sophia Museum and Sultan Ahmed Mosque. Attractions like Topkapi Palace and Bosphorus Strait make great kid-friendly stops. Change things up with a short trip to Delmece Yaylasi in Cinarcik (about 1h 35 min away). There's much more to do: hunt for treasures at Kapali Carsi, take in the spiritual surroundings of Suleymaniye Cami , explore the world behind art at Chora Museum, and surround yourself with nature on a nature and wildlife tour.

For traveler tips, photos, reviews, and other tourist information, go to the Istanbul road trip planning site.
