Presentation of Istanbul
Buzzing with European and Asian influences, Istanbul is a truly fascinating city. Originally built around the seventh century BC by the Greeks, it was a central location for the Ottoman Empire in the mid-fifteenth century. Today, 97% of the population identify as Muslim, but vary in their religious practices and presentation. The city is united around a love of seasonal food with meze tavernas a-plenty. Enjoy traditional Ottoman cuisine in world-class restaurants or sip cocktails on a rooftop bar overlooking the city. Istanbul is also home to a bustling nightlife scene, perfect for travellers who love to make the most out of day and night.
Offering lots to do and see, Istanbul is a great year-round destination, though undoubtedly popular in the summer months. Many locals leave the city in July and August, so some areas are less crowded, if very warm. Some venues may close during these months, so it is worth checking ahead before planning your itinerary. Regardless, there’s something for everyone, whatever the weather. Enjoy galleries, shops, clubs and sites steeped in history. The best way to explore the city is by foot, and the cooler weather in September and October is an ideal time for such leisurely touring.
