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.
Family-friendly places like Hagia Sophia Museum / Church (Ayasofya) and Basilica Cistern will thrill your kids. There's still lots to do: take in the spiritual surroundings of Sultan Ahmed Mosque, take a stroll through Ortakoy, contemplate the long history of Galata Tower, and admire the striking features of Suleymaniye Cami .

To see traveler tips, ratings, and other tourist information, refer to the Istanbul online itinerary creator.

If you are flying in from Saudi Arabia, the closest major airports are Atatürk International Airport and Sabiha Gökçen International Airport. August in Istanbul sees daily highs of 34°C and lows of 25°C at night. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 15th (Fri) so you can travel back home.
