I traveled through Istanbul for 3 days by myself in the Winter of 2016. The temperature was relatively similar to the US at that time (40s Fahrenheit). Istanbul has one of the most interesting vibes of anywhere you will go to in Europe - a really interesting blend of traditional and modern.

Sultan Ahmed Mosque

Sultan Ahmet Mahallesi, Sultan Ahmed Mosque, Fatih/Istanbul, Turkey

Historic Blue Mosque - try going in mid morning, you won't be able to tour the mosque during prayer time which is I believe 6 times a day especially during sunrise and sunset. No shorts for men or women - for women they do provide hijab on loan to wear when entering.
