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.
Hagia Sophia Museum / Church (Ayasofya) and Topkapi Palace are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Relax by the water at Asaf Family Beach and Eskibag plaji. Get out of town with these interesting Istanbul side-trips: Buyukada (Nakibey Plaj & Aya Yorgi Church) and Bursa (Ulu Cami, Koza Hani, & more). There's lots more to do: take in the spiritual surroundings of Yeni Camii, get engrossed in the history at Istanbul Arkeoloji Muzesi, enjoy unforgettable views with a balloon tour, and wander the streets of Beyoglu.

To see maps, reviews, photos, and tourist information, go to the Istanbul day trip site .

If you are flying in from Netherlands, the closest major airports are Istanbul Airport and Sabiha Gökçen International Airport. In October, daytime highs in Istanbul are 28°C, while nighttime lows are 26°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 27th (Sun) to allow enough time to travel back home.
