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.
Istanbul is known for museums, historic sites, shopping, nature, and nightlife. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: get engrossed in the history at Hagia Sophia Museum / Church (Ayasofya), explore the ancient world of Basilica Cistern, take in the spiritual surroundings of Suleymaniye Cami , and take a stroll through Ortakoy.

For photos, maps, ratings, and more tourist information, use the Istanbul trip planning website .

In December, plan for daily highs up to 7°C, and evening lows to 7°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 1st (Wed) to allow time to travel back home.
