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 Suleymaniye Cami make great kid-friendly stops. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Istanbul: Faruk Yalcin Zoo (in Darica), Delmece Yaylasi (in Cinarcik) and Uzuntarla Tabiat Parki (in Basiskele). There's lots more to do: admire the landmark architecture of Basilica Cistern, explore the activities along Bosphorus Strait, take in the spiritual surroundings of Sultan Ahmed Mosque, and get to know the fascinating history of Sultanahmet District.

To see photos, where to stay, and other tourist information, go to the Istanbul journey planner.

If you are flying in from Russia, the closest major airports are Istanbul Airport and Sabiha Gökçen International Airport. Expect a daytime high around 17°C in November, and nighttime lows around 17°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 26th (Sun) to allow time to travel back home.
