One Evening in Istanbul

Jump to last reply

We're looking at an itinerary on Turkish Airlines in late November which includes an optional 20-hour layover on a Saturday in Istanbul. This intrigues me, as we once used a 23-hr layover in Madrid to delightful advantage. Our flight arrives at 1530 on a Saturday, and the connecting flight leaves at 1100 on Sunday morning.

After we clear immigration and customs, I'm wondering if there will be enough time in the evening to see a few of the major sights, such as the Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia, the Hippodrome, the Grand Bazaar, the Bosphorus, and some of the city's neighborhoods. One concern is whether some of these locations close after a certain hour. Our arrival time doesn't fit with the free tour that the airline offers, so we'll probably hire a private guide for the evening.

Any thoughts, suggestions, recommendations from you would be most welcome.
