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.
Attractions like Hagia Sophia Museum and Basilica Cistern make great kid-friendly stops. There's much more to do: take an in-depth tour of Topkapi Palace, enjoy breathtaking views from Galata Tower, admire the masterpieces at Istanbul Modern, and see the interesting displays at Istanbul Museum of The History of Science & Technology in Islam.

To see where to stay, other places to visit, maps, and other tourist information, refer to the Istanbul trip itinerary website.

Use the Route module to see travel options from your home to Istanbul. In August in Istanbul, expect temperatures between 34°C during the day and 25°C at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 7th (Fri) so you can travel to Selimiye.
