Istanbul

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.
Explore hidden gems such as Walking tours and Yeni Camii. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Istanbul: Bursa (Ulu Cami & Green Tomb), Sapanca Lake (in Sapanca) and Buyukada (Aya Yorgi Church, Nakibey Plaj, & more). There's much more to do: explore the galleries of Hagia Sophia Museum / Church (Ayasofya), take an in-depth tour of Topkapi Palace, admire the striking features of Basilica Cistern, and stroll around Gulhane Park.

To find maps, where to stay, more things to do, and other tourist information, you can read our Istanbul trip planner.

If you are flying in from Brazil, the closest major airports are Istanbul Airport and Sabiha Gökçen International Airport. October in Istanbul sees daily highs of 28°C and lows of 26°C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 20th (Tue) early enough to travel back home.
