Places to Visit in Istanbul

It's nice to just wander the streets when you're in a new destination, but sometimes it's sensible to have an agenda. Grab your travel programme — we have plenty of awesome ideas for your upcoming Istanbul holiday.

With such a great line up of world-famous attractions in the one place, you certainly won't be idle in Istanbul! First things first, make sure you snap some selfies out the front of the Hagia Sophia and the Hippodrome. After you've ticked those off, you'll still have the Blue Mosque and Topkapi Palace to visit!

With tourist attractions such as Galata Tower and Dolmabahce Palace, there will never be a boring moment in this bustling metropolis. After you've finished looking around those, continue in the direction of Spice Bazaar and Taksim Square.

The link to ancient history is strong at Basilica Cistern. Make a booking now and discover the evidence of specialized archaeological study. Visitors in this destination have heaps of options. Are you eager to know more about some of the local cultural and religious traditions? Attend prayer with devoted worshipers at Suleymaniye Mosque and enjoy a look into the Islamic faith. Still have some time on your hands? Wouldn't mind adding some greater meaning to your travels? Go on a pilgrimage to Chora Church. No matter your beliefs, it's an excellent place to observe and find out about the local faith.

Istanbul Accommodation

Though Istanbul does have 1,245 accommodation to choose from, it's always smart to reserve a room early. Not quite sure where to begin? Expedia is here to help out with your cheap holiday or luxury getaway.

Those with a taste for the good life are sure to enjoy the Four Seasons Hotel Istanbul at the Bosphorus (Ciragan Cad. No. 28) and the Shangri-La Bosphorus, Istanbul (Sinanpasa Mah, Hayrettin Iskelesi Sok). Looking for somewhere a bit cheaper? The Park Hyatt Istanbul Macka Palas - Boutique Class (Tesvikiye, Bronz Sokak No. 4 Sisli) and the Lion Hotel (Lamartin Caddesi No:41 Taksim) are a couple of options that won't cost you an arm and a leg.

A real highlight of any visit to Istanbul is the Hagia Sophia. If you're eager to stay within walking distance of this iconic attraction, the Four Seasons Hotel Istanbul at Sultanahmet and the GLK PREMIER Acropol Suites & Spa are both great options.
