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.
Attractions like Hagia Sophia Museum / Church (Ayasofya) and Kapali Carsi make great kid-friendly stops. Explore Istanbul's surroundings by going to Uzuntarla Tabiat Parki (in Basiskele), Buyukada Tabiat Parki (in Buyukada) and Delmece Yaylasi (in Cinarcik). Spend the 24th (Sat) exploring nature at Irmak Tabiat Parki. And it doesn't end there: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Sultan Ahmed Mosque, take in panoramic vistas at Galata Tower, wander the streets of Sultanahmet District, and contemplate the waterfront views at Bosphorus Strait.

If you are flying in from Bahrain, the closest major airports are Istanbul Airport and Sabiha Gökçen International Airport. In August, plan for daily highs up to 34°C, and evening lows to 25°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 31st (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
