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.
Family-friendly places like Hagia Sophia Museum / Church (Ayasofya) and Dolmabahce Palace will thrill your kids. There's much more to do: admire the landmark architecture of Basilica Cistern, contemplate the waterfront views at Bosphorus Strait, savor the flavors at Food & Drink, and explore the world behind art at Istanbul Modern.

Cape Town, South Africa to Istanbul is an approximately 12.5-hour flight. Traveling from Cape Town to Istanbul, you'll lose 1 hour due to the time zone difference.

On the 20th (Sat), wrap the sightseeing up by early afternoon so you can travel back home.
