Travel to Istanbul

Travelling by plane
Atatürk International Airport is the major international airport in I.stanbul, located on the European side just 24 km west of the city centre. There are regular services from the Middle East, the USA, and Australia and daily flights from most European cities. More than 80 domestic flights arrive in Istanbul every day.

Travelling by train
International services are available from Sirkeci (on the European side) and Haydarpasa (Asian side) stations via Vienna, Munich, Budapest, Salonica, (via Eskisehir, Konya, and Gaziantep), Aleppo, (via Tatvan and Van), Tehran, Moscow and Bucharest. Trains heading west leave from Sirkeci, and east from Haydarpasa station.

Travelling by car
Istanbul is well connected to many European cities by highways including the 225 km stretch between Edirne and Istanbul. There are two principal gateways into Turkey; Kapikule in Edirne coming from Bulgaria, or Ipsala coming from Greece.

Getting around in Istanbul

The easiest way to get around Istanbul is by taxi. Make sure you have some Turkish liras with you. No taxi driver will accept credit cards. You will find ATMs and a currency exchange office inside the airport. We advise you to only take official taxis. They are bright yellow and have a sign on the roof with the word taksi on it. Furthermore, their taxi registration number (and sometimes company logo) should be clearly visible on the front doors and the roof. Most importantly, all official taxis have digital meters.

A trip from Atatürk Airport to Sultanahmet will set you back around TL 60-70; to Taksim you may have to pay TL 90-100.
