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.
You'll get in some beach time at Silivri Sahili and Saklikoy. Do your shopping at Kapali Carsi and Misir Carsisi. There's much more to do: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Hagia Sophia Museum / Church (Ayasofya), get to know the fascinating history of Sultanahmet District, explore the ancient world of Basilica Cistern, and enjoy the sand and surf at Aqua Beach.

For where to stay, other places to visit, traveler tips, and tourist information, read our Istanbul trip planning app .

If you are flying in from United Kingdom, the closest major airports are Atatürk International Airport and Sabiha Gökçen International Airport. In May in Istanbul, expect temperatures between 25°C during the day and 15°C at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 11th (Tue) to allow enough time to travel back home.
