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.
Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Ortakoy and Topkapi Palace. Your inner history buff will appreciate Basilica Cistern and Sultanahmet District. There's still lots to do: admire the striking features of Hagia Sophia Museum / Church (Ayasofya), stop by Galeria Rugs, kick back and relax at Burc Beach, and delve into the lush surroundings at Great Camlica Estate Park.

To find more things to do, traveler tips, ratings, and other tourist information, use the Istanbul online itinerary creator.

If you are flying in from United Arab Emirates, the closest major airports are Atatürk International Airport and Sabiha Gökçen International Airport. In September in Istanbul, expect temperatures between 29°C during the day and 20°C at night.
