Hire a car in Istanbul

A metropolis unlike any other, Istanbul is one of the world’s greatest cross-cultural meeting points.

Balanced between Europe and Asia, the city’s dual identity has been shifted and shaped throughout the centuries by various empires. Istanbul today fully embraces its history, showcasing it through a stunning array of architecture and gastronomic delicacies. Yet, locals reel in the contemporary with a spirited parties and new design.

The city’s role not only within Turkey but on the global stage is truly significant but beyond the capital you’ll find a wealth of other attractions. From beaches set against turquoise-coloured waters to eerie rock formations and archeological treasures, an Istanbul-based road trip is spectacular.

Sights to see

Steeped in history, Istanbul is a fascinating city, its west part is in Europe and east part is in Asia. In its south is the Marmara Sea, to its north is the Black Sea, and bisecting it is the Bosphorus River. As a port city many trade paths have passed through Istanbul for thousands of years, each one only adding to its cultural richness. There is so much to see and do in Istanbul, perhaps you could start with the bazaars and spice market, shop for jewellery and carpets and soak up the smells of honey and cinnamon. Or visit one of the city’s many beautiful mosques.

Istanbul: Discover more

If there is any energy left after a day’s sightseeing there is still plenty more to do. Sample the delights of Turkish pastries, baklavas, profiteroles, or helva, or drink tea in the Pera Palace hotel. But if you are feeling really lively Istanbul has plenty to offer in the way of nightlife, history has given way to a new generation of bars and clubs, particularly in the districts of Beyoglu and Ortaköy.
