Istanbul Holiday Packages

If you were to pick only one destination out of the many holiday packages in Turkey, make it Istanbul. A major city with a skyline not dominated by sky rise buildings, but by the spires, minarets, towers and domes of mosques, it is one landscape worth seeing once in your lifetime. With an expanse of blue surrounding it, Istanbul offers tourists and travelers an experience on land or at sea. One thing you shouldn’t miss is the peninsula of the Old City where remnants of the Silk Road and spice routes of the Ottoman era can be found. It’s going to be a sensory experience.

Istanbul - Holiday Tour Packages from India

 

A place capable of transporting you back in time, 2000 years ago or so, through its historical buildings and culture-rich streets is what Istanbul is all about. Located strategically between the Black Sea and the Mediterranean, between the Balkans and Anatolia, and on the Bosphorus Peninsula, this most populous and popular city in Turkey culturally and physically bridges Asia and Europe. As a Holiday destination where East and West meet, Istanbul has sightseeing & activities that are a lot more than the number of minarets in the city. And no, you can't count them with your fingers and toes.

 

Places to visit in Istanbul, Turkey

Do you want to see famous historical sites in Istanbul in one go? Head out to Sultanahmet-Old City, the oldest part of Istanbul, and Constantinople of the Roman, the Ottoman and the Byzantine periods.

  • The Western Suburbs of Istanbul carries the European side, while the eastern half has the Asian Side. Not exactly easy to get to from one point to another, but visiting these areas would be like traveling to Asia and Europe minus the long-distance flights.
  • Princes' Islands is an archipelago that consists of nine islands that you can explore on foot or on a bike, but never the need for a car. Regardless of the size, each island provides an excellent getaway from the hustle and bustle of the city of Istanbul.

There are plenty of other districts to visit in the city that offer fascinating sightseeing & activities. Some may be touristy than most, but worth spending your holiday in.

 

Things to do in Istanbul, Turkey

  • Visiting Hamams of Istanbul is an essential part of any Istanbul holiday. Turkish baths vary from just historical to historical and extravagant. Some offer a good scrubbing and/or a massage, which could be a great experience after a long day of engaging in different activities. 
  • Smoke a hookah or water pipe in Yeniçeriler Caddesi near the Grand Bazaar. Locally known as nargile, the Turkish water pipe used to be the center of the social and political life of Istanbul. Although it is not the case today, locals still think of it as one of life's great pleasures, and something you should experience when you travel to Istanbul. 
  • Plenty of areas in the city offer an opportunity for historical and educational walking tours. A leisurely stroll between Hagia Sophia and Topkapi museum, for example, would take at least 3 to 4 hours to complete, which says a lot about the many things you will see and discover in these charming areas.

Other things to do include a Bosphorus Cruise, Jewish heritage tour, Theodosian walls walk, and shopping at bazaars.
