Hello Roor,

There is so many sights to see in Istanbul.

You should visit Topkapi palace but allow at least 1/2 a day to explore it fully and visit the Harem (which is worth seeing)

Hagia Sofia, The Blue Mosque and Underground Cistern can all be visted in 1 day - they are very close to each other in the Sultanahmet area.

Another day you could visit the Grand Bazaar and allow 4 hours to do this. There are over 5000 shops inside. And plenty of places to eat your lunch.

The next day you can visit the Princes Islands by boat which will prove an enjoyable day out.

Then on the last day you can visit Dolmabahce palace which is spectacular in its decor and worth a visit.

Theres not much really to keep children entertained unless they enjoy history.

Hope this helps.
