Istanbul welcomes millions of tourists every year from all over the world, visiting the historical, cultural buildings and many more places.
Getting around Istanbul is much easier and more convenient through public transport, as every site is easily accessible. All you need is a transportation ticket (Istanbul Card), then you can use it.
If you get stuck or need help, there will always be someone to guide you, as Turks are friendly and helpful.
What you can do in Istanbul is:
You can roam around Taksim and experience Istiklal Street and Taksim Square, and end your day with a visit to Galata Tower.
You can visit the Blue Mosque, which opens early at 9 am, within a few minutes of walking distance from the Sultan Ahmet tram station. But you should note that the mosques close at prayer times and reopen after 30 minutes for the tourists; covering their heads with a scarf is a sign of respect.
