If you ask someone from the tourism industry, they will recommend the period September – November. Why? That’s when the crowds diminish, the rates drop, and weather is spectacular. What makes Istanbul so important you may wonder. First of all, the history, for sure. The city served as the capital of four empires: the Roman Empire, the Byzantine Empire, the Latin Empire and the Ottoman Empire, so you image how rich in history it is. Amongst the top tourist attractions you can find Istanbul Galata Tower, Istanbul Maiden’s Tower, Hagia Sophia, Istanbul Egyptian Bazaar, Istanbul Blue Mosque (Sultan Ahmet Mosque), Istanbul Basilica Cistern (YereBatan Sarnici), Istanbul Vialand (Turkey’s Disneyland), Istanbul Topkapi Palace Museum, etc. Amazing city with irresistible atmosphere.
If you ask someone from the Digital industry about the best time to visit Istanbul, they will tell you two days: 1-2 October. The time when the global digital and tech leaders gather together for a memorable experience – the 6th Webit Global Congress.
