A few hours in Istanbul

Jump to last reply

A change in itinerary has now given me five hours between flights at the Istanbul airport (IST), arriving at 7 PM and departing just after midnight for Johannesburg. All flights are business class (Aeroplan reward). This is Wednesday November 7. I have never been to Turkey before. Is there any reasonable option for leaving the airport to do some sightseeing? For me sightseeing does not have to be grand famous things; it can simply be a chance to walk down a commercial street and observe the passing scene or perhaps a taxi tour. Effectively this is only about two useful hours since I don't wish to cut things too close. My main bag will be checked through but I will have to deal with my carry on since I assume there will be no place to leave it at the airport.

Thanks in advance for your advice.
