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.
Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Ulu Cami and Eyüp Sultan Mosque. Beyoglu and Eminonu Square are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Get out of town with these interesting Istanbul side-trips: Sakarya Il Ormani Tabiat Parki (in Sapanca), Basiskele (Uzuntarla Tabiat Parki & Eriklitepe Tabiat Parki) and Kartepe Ski Center (in Kartepe). There's lots more to do: contemplate the waterfront views at Halic, make a trip to Istiklal Street, admire the landmark architecture of Yeni Camii, and appreciate the extensive heritage of Pierre Loti Tepesi.

For more things to do, maps, photos, and more tourist information, use the Istanbul day trip planner.

If you are flying in from Egypt, the closest major airports are Istanbul Airport and Sabiha Gökçen International Airport. Expect a daytime high around 7°C in December, and nighttime lows around 7°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 3rd (Fri) early enough to travel back home.
