Istanbul

— 8 nights

Queen of Cities

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.
Your day by day itinerary now includes Photography Tours. Get a sense of the local culture at Hagia Sophia and Basilica Cistern. There's still lots to do: take an in-depth tour of Topkapi Palace, admire the landmark architecture of Dolmabahce Palace, hunt for treasures at Kapali Carsi, and explore the world behind art at Istanbul Modern.

To see other places to visit, maps, where to stay, and other tourist information, read Istanbul trip planner.

Washington DC, USA to Istanbul is an approximately 15-hour flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 8 hours traveling from Washington DC to Istanbul. Plan for somewhat warmer nights when traveling from Washington DC in February since evenings lows in Istanbul dip to 50°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 21st (Fri) early enough to travel back home.

Rich in culture and customs and brimming with hospitality, natural beauty, and historical heritage, Turkey serves as a crossroads between Asia and Europe. The landmass known as Anatolia on which Turkey thrives has been home to numerous civilizations and their faiths and cultures, as attested by the 13 World Heritage Sites and countless religious sites you'll find here. Relive the ancient world through the ruins, customs, and traditions that are among the nation's most precious heritages. Adventure-seekers have plenty do to here, including mountain climbing, scuba diving, rafting, and skiing. A holiday to Turkey is incomplete without a cup of Turkish coffee, the pinnacle of Turkish cuisine inscribed on the Intangible Cultural Heritage List.
