Things to do

From centuries-old historical landmarks to vibrant neighbourhoods and cultural events, Istanbul presents an array of family-friendly activities and experiences that appeal to all ages. Embark on a journey through the city's captivating attractions and discover why Istanbul is a top destination for family holidays.

Delve into Istanbul's rich history with visits to the alluring Basilica Cistern, where you can wander through the ancient subterranean waterway, and marvel at its 336 marble columns. Continue your exploration at the extraordinary Topkapi Palace Museum, where you can admire the opulent treasures of the Ottoman Empire and immerse yourselves in the enchanting stories of sultans, concubines, and palace life.

Visit the iconic Galata Tower, one of the world's oldest towers and a symbol of Istanbul. Gaze out across the city's skyline from its nine-story peak and wander through the eclectic neighbourhood of Galata, filled with historical monuments, art galleries, and bustling marketplaces for an unforgettable day of family fun.

Seek out the city's stunning architectural wonders, such as the Blue Mosque and Hagia Sophia, and take a leisurely family walk along the famous pedestrian shopping street, Istiklal Avenue. Hop on a Bosphorus cruise to make the most of Istanbul's unique position between Europe and Asia, and relish in the chance to traverse both continents in a single day.

Make lifelong memories in mesmerising Istanbul by experiencing the city's cultural events, such as the annual Jazz Festival or Tulip Festival, where the entire family can appreciate vibrant performances and displays in a captivating setting. No matter your interests or ages, Istanbul promises incredible experiences for the whole family to cherish.

When to visit

For an enjoyable family holiday in Istanbul, consider planning your visit between April-May, or mid-September to October when the weather is mild, there are fewer tourists, and sightseeing opportunities are optimal. Istanbul's climate varies due to its location on both the European and Asian continents but these months provide pleasant conditions for families to explore the city's countless delights.

During your stay, you might wish to experience Istanbul's cultural festivities such as the Istanbul Jazz Festival and the Tulip Festival, which are perfect events for family entertainment. Although winter offers cheaper travel deals, the colder, rainier climate may be less suitable for families looking to explore. As always, when planning your holiday, it's important to arrange your visit around school holidays to avoid fines for taking children out of school during term time.
