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.
Venture out of the city with trips to Yalova (Cevdet Aydin Parki, Dipsiz Gol, & more), Bursa (Iznik & Celal Bayar Vakfi ve Muzesi) and Mudanya (Derekoy Kilisesi & Mudanya Armistice House Museum). There's much more to do: contemplate the long history of Hagia Sophia Museum / Church (Ayasofya), contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Suleymaniye Cami , admire the masterpieces at Istanbul Modern, and indulge in some culinary diversions at a local gastronomic tour.

To find other places to visit, more things to do, where to stay, and other tourist information, you can read our Istanbul online trip itinerary planner .

In May in Istanbul, expect temperatures between 25°C during the day and 15°C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 9th (Sun) early enough to travel back home.
