Make a Self Catered Istanbul Apartment Your Home Away From Home

At the crossroads between two continents, Istanbul has been welcoming visitors for many centuries now. Any holidays in Istanbul will see east meet west, as traditional Asian and European cultures merge to become one in this unique and fascinating city. To experience all that this great Turkish metropolis has to offer, your best bet is to reserve accommodation in Istanbul that is close to the central areas and all of the everyday bustle of life.  

Things to Do on Holiday in Istanbul, Turkey

With a myriad mosques and impressive places of worship around the city, expect your draw to be dropping to the floor as you marvel at the spectacular architectural delights of the old Constantinople. Any holidays in Istanbul would not be complete without taking the time to explore the spice bazaars and colourful markets. Why not take a trip along The Bosphorus; enjoy the numerous exhibits and artefacts found at the Rahmi Koc Industrial Museum; and don’t forget all of the amazing restaurants scattered across the city that are able to provide you with a true taste of Turkey on your holidays in Istanbul. 

Places to Visit on Holiday in Istanbul, Turkey

To gain an even greater appreciation of Turkish history and culture, it is recommended that you take the 2 hour journey south-west to the city of Bursa; Turkey’s fourth largest city. Set a full day aside to vacate your accommodation in Istanbul as there is so much to cram in to your visit. One absolute must on your itinerary has to be The Great Mosque (Ulu Cami) which is one of the most impressive examples of architecture that you are ever likely to see. This amazing building dates as far back as the 14th century. You will literally be falling over museums in this city and some of the ones to keep your eyes open to include The Bursa Turkish Architecture Museum, The Islamic Works Museum and The Bursa City Museum. All of the family will love the Bursa Zoo and Botanical Gardens.

Weather in Istanbul, Turkey

On your holidays in Istanbul, you can expect to experience some generally good weather. Temperatures are never that extreme in this city, but summers really can become quite hot and humid; expect temperatures to reach well into the thirties degrees Celsius during July and August. Rainfall levels are around the 20 inches per year mark.

Travel to Istanbul, Turkey

The city of Istanbul is served by its own busy airport - Istanbul International Airport (IST). Conveniently, Istanbul accommodation should always be within a very short transfer time of the airport. There are a number of airlines that fly to this region, including Easyjet, Ryanair, British Airways and BMI. You will have a choice of several airports to depart from in the UK, with London Heathrow (LHR), Luton (LTN), Birmingham (BHX) and Manchester (MAN) being a small selection for you.

HomeAway has a wide selection of short term rentals in Istanbul, available to rent for two and three month extended visits.
