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.
Istanbul is known for museums, historic sites, and shopping. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: take in the spiritual surroundings of Hagia Sophia Museum / Church (Ayasofya), visit Ortakoy, get engrossed in the history at Topkapi Palace, and explore the world behind art at Istanbul Modern.

For other places to visit, reviews, photos, and more tourist information, read our Istanbul day trip planner .

Cape Town, South Africa to Istanbul is an approximately 12.5-hour flight. You'll lose 1 hour traveling from Cape Town to Istanbul due to the time zone difference. Plan for little chillier temperatures traveling from Cape Town in April, with highs in Istanbul at 20°C and lows at 9°C. Wrap up your sightseeing by early afternoon on the 13th (Mon) to allow enough time to travel back home.
