Traffic Infromation

Istanbul Ataturk International Airport is 18.8 miles to the west of the city. It is on the western or European side of the Bosphorus and you can drive to the city centre in around 40 minutes if you take the main D100 route. If you are opting for car hire on the Anatolian or Asian side of the city at Sabiha Gökçen International Airport the 28.4 mile journey via the O4 takes around 53 minutes. Most major hotels have parking for guests and there are parking facilities close to major tourist attractions throughout the city. You can cross the Bosphorus via the Bosphorus Bridge or the Fatih Sultan Mehmet Bridge. They are both toll brides and the Bosphorus Bridge is closer to the Sea of Marmara while the Fatih Sultan Mehmet Bridge, the longer of the two, is nearer the Black Sea.

Sixt Tip


Istanbul is well known for its business and financial hubs, its cultural attractions and its numerous historic sites. However, its also known for flowers - tulips to be precise. From March until May visitors can see huge displays. Some of the best places to admire the colourful blooms include Sultanahmet Park, Gulhane Park and Emirgan Park, or Çaml%u0131ca Hill on the Asian Side. Be sure to enjoy a Hammam while you are visiting the city. The traditional Turkish bath is a real treat and should not be missed and you will find bathhouses in every neighbourhood.
