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.
Kids will enjoy Hagia Sophia Museum and Sultan Ahmed Mosque. Get some historical perspective at Basilica Cistern and Rumeli Fortress. There's still lots to do: visit Taksim Square, take an in-depth tour of Topkapi Palace, take a stroll through Ortakoy, and explore the world behind art at Chora Museum.

To find traveler tips, other places to visit, more things to do, and more tourist information, you can read our Istanbul journey planner.

In May, daily temperatures in Istanbul can reach °C, while at night they dip to °C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 29th (Fri) early enough to travel back home.
