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.
Spend the 9th (Fri) wandering around Taksim Square. There's much more to do: admire the landmark architecture of Hagia Sophia Museum / Church (Ayasofya), enjoy breathtaking views from Galata Tower, take an in-depth tour of Topkapi Palace, and hunt for treasures at Grand Bazaar (Kapali Carsi).

To find other places to visit, reviews, and more tourist information, go to the Istanbul travel itinerary creator.

If you are flying in from Morocco, the closest major airports are Atatürk International Airport and Sabiha Gökçen International Airport. Expect a daytime high around 12°C in December, and nighttime lows around 6°C.
