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.
Visit Galata Tower and Basilica Cistern for their historical value. Museum-lovers will get to explore Kariye Museum (The Chora Church) and Dolmabahce Sanat Galerisi. There's still lots to do: take an in-depth tour of Topkapi Palace, look for gifts at Egyptian Bazaar, contemplate the long history of Historic Areas of Istanbul, and admire the striking features of Hagia Sophia Museum / Church (Ayasofya).

For reviews, maps, other places to visit, and more tourist information, read our Istanbul travel guide.

If you are flying in from Qatar, the closest major airports are Atatürk International Airport and Sabiha Gökçen International Airport. In July in Istanbul, expect temperatures between 35°C during the day and 25°C at night.
