Istanbul is a beautiful blend of both European and Asian cultures as this enchanting Turkish city connects both continents. Strategically located on both sides of the magnificent Bosphorus Strait, Istanbul is one of the largest cities in Europe and offers an experience that is perhaps not paralleled by any of the usual holiday destinations.
Although not a conventional honeymoon destination when compared to places like Switzerland, Istanbul is gaining popularity with all travelers for the unique experiences it offers, and an increasing number of couples are opting to discover this magical land for their honeymoon. If you are traveling to Istanbul for the first time or do not want to bother with all the various bookings and transportation arrangements required for a holiday, consider opting for Istanbul packages that ensure a romantic and stress-free time for both of you. Here are some of the Istanbul packages that you can choose from for your honeymoon, so that professionals will handle all your travel needs while you have a memorable vacation with your new spouse.
4-nights 5-days Istanbul package by Turkey Honeymoon Packages (Approx. € 400 per person)
With stays in 4-star hotels and transport in a sit-in coach or private basis as per your preference, this is among the romantic Istanbul packages that are available throughout the year. The itinerary of this package takes you through the famous Istanbul landmarks while also leaving you leisure time to relax and spend time with your partner. Here’s what this honeymoon package offers:
Arrive at Istanbul, where you will be met by representatives at the airport. They will provide a transfer vehicle to take you to the hotel, where you can spend the rest of the day relaxing or exploring the nearby areas with your beloved.
Tuck into some delicious breakfast at the hotel, and then you will proceed to a half-day tour of Istanbul. Your tour will begin at Hagia Sophia located at the heart of old Istanbul, one of the most famous landmarks in the city. You can spend time admiring the breathtaking architecture of this beautiful ancient structure, which is a church-turned-mosque-turned museum. Next on the tour is the famous Blue Mosque, another exquisite attraction and the only imperial mosque that has six minarets. From there, the tour takes you to the Grand Bazaar, a marketplace brimming with some of the most interesting and unique treasures that sit in around 4,000 shops. Resisting a bit of holiday shopping would be in vain, as you can buy anything from leather goods, ceramic, and silks to beautiful Turkish carpets. If you happen to take this tour on a Monday, the Hagia Sophia trip would be replaced with a visit to the famous Chora Church as it is closed on Mondays.
After breakfast at your hotel, your third day in Istanbul will begin with a trip to the 17th Century Spice Bazaar, one of the most vibrant attractions in Istanbul. Once you are done soaking in the uniqueness of the market (and buying some spices), the tour will take you on an unforgettable cruise on the Bosphorus Strait, the well-known waterway that serves as a beautiful link between Europe and Asia. While on the cruise, you will be treated to some magnificent Istanbul sights that include beautiful mosques, an ancient fortress, and a spectacular bridge. This lovely cruise is one of the highlights of most Istanbul packages, so do not miss out on this while on your Istanbul holiday. You can spend the rest of the day at the hotel relieving the wonderful sights or go for a stroll to discover some more Turkish delights.
Being one of the Istanbul packages that leave newlyweds ample time to enjoy their honeymoon in seclusion, the fourth day of your holiday is without any scheduled plans. You are free to spend the day lounging around at the hotel after breakfast, explore the city on your own, or go for one of the optional tours that the package offers. We recommend a visit to a Turkish hamam for a unique spa and bath experience.
It may seem all too soon, but the final day in Istanbul has arrived. Enjoy your breakfast at the hotel, and depending on your flight schedule, you can spend some more time exploring the nearby areas. You will then be provided an airport transfer.
