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.
Do some cultural sightseeing at Topkapi Palace and Hagia Sophia Museum / Church (Ayasofya). Museum-lovers will appreciate Kariye Museum (The Chora Church) and Istanbul Modern Museum. There's lots more to do: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Sultan Ahmed Mosque, wander the streets of Sultanahmet District, contemplate the long history of Historic Areas of Istanbul, and see the interesting displays at Rahmi M. Koc Museum.

To find photos, reviews, traveler tips, and tourist information, go to the Istanbul online trip builder .

If you are flying in from Canada, the closest major airports are Atatürk International Airport and Sabiha Gökçen International Airport. In April, daily temperatures in Istanbul can reach 20°C, while at night they dip to 9°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 17th (Wed) early enough to travel back home.
