Istanbul's major airport is located in Arnavutköy, just 50 km from the city centre. You can catch direct flights to Istanbul from Birmingham, Edinburgh, London and Manchester. If no direct flights are available, convenient connecting flights are bookable from major European airports like Paris–Charles de Gaulle and Amsterdam Schiphol. Alternatively, you can book flights to Istanbul’s other international airport, Sabiha Gokcen, from London. Sabiha Gokcen is further out from the city but still easily accessible shuttle bus.
Istanbul is one of the world's great melting pots. Located right in the middle of the East and West, it boasts a kaleidoscope of centuries-spanning attractions. Take a deep dive into ancient Greek, Roman and Venetian culture or indulge in modern Istanbul and its colourful coffeehouses and tea rooms. While the grand sights can be awe-inspiring, the smaller winding paths and alleys provide a more intimate adventure. That's not to mention the sizzling cuisine that’s worth the trip alone.
By far one of Istanbul’s most memorable sights, the Blue Mosque is a 17th-century masterpiece. This towering and curvaceous place of worship is layered with glittering blue Iznik tiles. Non-worshipping visitors must enter by the south gate and be appropriately dressed.
This stunning 6th-century cathedral-turned-mosque is the epitome of Istanbul history. It has seen centuries of use as a holy place of worship, from the Byzantine Empire through Latin Catholic and Ottoman conquest. Today, it has been converted back into a mosque after previously being a museum, but it remains open to the visiting public.
Istanbul's palatial big-hitter was the residence of Ottoman sultans and their Imperial harems. Its history is as colourful as its bejewelled interiors, with conniving political courtiers and concubine intrigue. It remains one of the most breathtaking attractions in Istanbul with its museological interiors and antiques.
The Grand Bazaar is a chaotic hub of bartering and purchasing that's been a mainstay since the 15th century. When you're not navigating the alluring stalls, investigate the miniature lanes to view artisans working on the wares. It's one of the best spots in Istanbul to get a sense of Turkish life and history.
One of many ancient cisterns that occupy Istanbul's underground, Basilica Cistern is one of the city's most impressive attractions. With roots in the 3rd century, its current structure was rebuilt in the 6th century by Emperor Justinian I. Aside from its cornucopia of ancient treasures, it also provides a much-needed respite from Istanbul's sweltering summers.
