We are hoping to be in Istanbul in November for a few days. I have some questions that I hope fellow members can help answer. I`m in the early stages of research so please provide any and all tips.
We would arrive in Istanbul from Athens and haven`t decided whether we should fly or sail into Istanbul. What is ferry service like in November? Spotty, good, not so good? If we fly, do you have suggestions on the best airline carrier? Should we buy plane tickets in Athens or book from Canada? Im finding good fares on kayak.com for Toronto-Athens-Istanbul-Toronto and this might be easier, though we like being on ships.
What recommendations do you have for accommodations in Istanbul? I don`t know the layout of the city so need plenty of advice. Clean and cheerful is our motto. We usually stay in small hotels or Pensions.
I`m looking forward to your suggestions.
