Experience City Breaks in Istanbul

Istanbul is the most populous as well as the largest city of Turkey and its cultural and monetary center. The city is bounded by the Sea of Marmara, the Golden Horn, the Bosporus Strait and the Black Sea and is connected extensively with sea ports.

The city has very mild summers with high percentage of humidity but winters are very cold, windy and snow is very often in the city during winter season. Between April-May and September-October the climate is usually moderate with temperature around 15-25 degrees and this is the best time for tourism in the city with respect to weather conditions.

Istanbul is not only a huge world city but it’s also very old. This blend results in an enormous amount of must –see sightseeing spots. Museums, mosques, churches, castles, archaeological sites, parks, bazaars or simply attractive towns, the city has it all.

There’s the extravagant Istanbul of the Bosphorus nightclubs, where rich young Turks dressed to the nines pull up to valet park their luxury cars or private yachts.
