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.
On the 17th (Mon), spend a fun day on foot with Walking tours. Spend the 19th (Wed) floating through the air with a balloon tour. There's still lots to do: admire the landmark architecture of Hagia Sophia Museum / Church (Ayasofya), take an in-depth tour of Topkapi Palace, take in panoramic vistas at Galata Tower, and browse the eclectic array of goods at Kapali Carsi.

To see where to stay, more things to do, other places to visit, and more tourist information, use the Istanbul trip planner .

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airports are Atatürk International Airport and Sabiha Gökçen International Airport. In December, plan for daily highs up to 44°F, and evening lows to 44°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 31st (Mon) to allow time to travel back home.
