Take flights to Istanbul for soaring minarets, Byzantine churches and meze in rooftop restaurants.

Things to do

On your Istanbul holiday, walk across Galata Bridge past fishermen casting off into the Bosphorus. Look up to see the pigeons flocking above the elegant minarets of Yeni Camii mosque which dominate Istanbul’s Old City skyline.

More things to do


At the labyrinthine medieval Grand Bazaar, where arched alleys are packed with dazzling stalls, join the crowds and haggle for your inlaid backgammon set, made from wood, brass and translucent mother-of-pearl. It makes a great souvenir from your Istanbul city break.

More shopping


Feast on freshly grilled fish with aniseed drink raki at traditional meyhane taverns on crowded Nevizade street. Local musicians entertain you at your table, with traditional music on violin and the reedy zurna.

More restaurants


Cool evening breezes and laid-back local DJs make the city’s rooftop bars the perfect place to relax after your flights to Istanbul. With a cocktail in hand, gaze out over the twinkling lights of the boats on the ink-black Bosphorus.
