What to do while in Istanbul

Istanbul is known most of all for what are called the big four. There’s the Topkapi Palace built by Mehmet the Conqueror during the days of the Ottoman Empire, and the city’s most famous landmark, the magnificent Byzantine church of Aya Sofya. Equally enchanting are the Blue Mosque and the Grand Bazaar. You can also take advantage of your Istanbul car hire and drive to the Yedikule Fortress overlooking the bay. 

Summer 2021 in Istanbul

Summer is a great time to use your car hire in Istanbul to drive down to the Eminönü dock, from where you can take a ferry across the Bosphorus to Istanbul’s Asian shore. You can also take a day trip in your car to the Gallipoli Battlefields from WWI. Chora Church is another ancient religious site worth visiting.
