Istanbul

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.
Istanbul is known for historic sites, museums, and shopping. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: admire the landmark architecture of Hagia Sophia, steep yourself in history at Galata Tower, take a stroll through Ortakoy, and explore the ancient world of Basilica Cistern.

You can plan Istanbul trip in no time by asking Inspirock to help create your itinerary.

Montreal, Canada to Istanbul is an approximately 13-hour flight. You'll lose 8 hours traveling from Montreal to Istanbul due to the time zone difference. When traveling from Montreal in October, plan for somewhat warmer days in Istanbul, with highs around 28°C, while nights are much hotter with lows around 26°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 10th (Thu) so you can travel to Bodrum City.

St.-Tropez of Turkey
Elegant Bodrum is a district and port city, watched over by its 15th-century seaside castle and is home to the Mausoleum of Mausolus, one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. Formerly a simple fishing village, the town flourished after writer Kabaağaçlı put the city on the map: exiled here in 1925, he adopted the pen name, "The Fisherman of Halicarnassus"--an allusion to the city's name in aniquity. Today this seaside vacation spot charms visitors with a glittering marina, flower-filled cafes, palm-lined promenades, and a host of seafood restaurants. The serene simplicity that caught Kabaağaçlı's eye has since attracted other artists, giving Bodrum a sophistication that sets it apart from other coastal towns.
