Cheap Manchester - Istanbul Flights

To travel between Manchester and Istanbul at a low cost, Easyvoyage provides two major pieces of information: the calendar and the price history for Manchester - Istanbul flights. These elements will allow you to analyse the cheapest Manchester - Istanbul flights by departure date.

Sightseeing Istanbul 1 Hagia Sophia

This is probably Istanbul's most iconic sight. Built as a basilica in the 6th century, it became a mosque in the 15th century and was subsequently transformed into a museum at the beginning of the 20th century. This impressive building still preserves both the original Christian and subsequent Islamic features; its most emblematic elements are the domes and the pendant chandeliers.

2 The Golden Horn

The Golden Horn is the natural harbour, which was key to Istanbul's development over the centuries. Greeks, Romans, Byzantines and Ottomans all used it as a port for their ships. This area now has gardens and parks, and its buzzing activity can be seen from four bridges connecting the shores.

3 Historical landmarks

Other stunning landmarks in the city include the Blue Mosque, the Basilica Cistern, the Theodosian walls and the Galata tower.

4 The bath houses

One of the most characteristic aspects of Turkish life are bath houses. Relax in one of these after a long day out: the most impressive is the Ca?alo?lu Hamam?, a beautifully ornate 300-year-old bath house.

5 Turkish cuisine

On top of the traditional kebab, this city boasts amazing seafood. Local specialties include Simit bread and grilled or fried hamsi (anchovies).

Required travel documents for Turkey

If you intend to travel to Turkey from Manchester, you should make sure you know at least about time differences and visa requirements. The UK is two hours behind Turkey. With regards to ID entry requirements, UK passport holders need a tourist visa, which allows you to enter the country for 90 days, and which can be purchased at the point of entry to the country for a small fee. Obviously, it is necessary to bring a valid passport to pass the border and obtain the visitor visa.
