Super cheap direct flights to Turkey are available from September 2016 all the way through to March 2017, even with British Airways. Departures are from all London airports and arrive into Istanbul, Turkey.
Istanbul is an ancient city, originally founded by the Greeks in the seventh century BC. It is unlike any other city in the world and is split between two continents; Europe and Asia. It is one of the world’s great cities, like London, New York or Paris, and is well worth a visit if only for a few days. There is a mix between the old quarter and its narrow cobbled streets lined with quaint old wooden houses, and the super modern parts of the city with its fantasy skyline of domes and minarets. To the south of the city, the blue waters of the Sea of Marmara glitter invitingly. This mega city, has a population of over 15 million, a vibrant skyline, and is beginning to resemble Manhattan.
