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, shopping, nature, and nightlife. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: take an in-depth tour of Hagia Sophia Museum / Church (Ayasofya), take in the spiritual surroundings of Sultan Ahmed Mosque, wander the streets of Ortakoy, and hunt for treasures at Kapali Carsi.

For more things to do, maps, ratings, and more tourist information, you can read our Istanbul attractions tool .

Rome, Italy to Istanbul is an approximately 6-hour flight. You can also do a combination of train and flight; or drive. The time zone changes from Central European Time to Eastern European Time, which is usually a 2 hour difference. Plan for somewhat warmer nights when traveling from Rome in October since evenings lows in Istanbul dip to 26°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 27th (Sun) early enough to travel back home.
