Istanbul Day Tour – Bosphorus coastline

Humid tropical climates dominate the northern half of Istanbul, as well as the Bosphorus coastline. The Mediterranean climate, warmer, drier and less affected by humidity dominates the populated areas of the city to the South, on the other hand

Istanbul is characterized with high humidity and that makes fog quite common although in the northern parts mainly than in the city centre.

Summers are warm. During summer months the average temperature is around 30 °C. The highest recorded temperature was 45 °C. Rainfall is uncommon.

Turkey is a big country and you can experience different climate at different places. For example, the best time to visit the ancient Ephesus is in summer (Ephesus sightseeing).

Mediterranean Basin

Winter is colder in Istanbul than in most other cities around the Mediterranean Basin. Average temperature is around 10 °C. Nights are much colder. Snow in Istanbul is occasional, around 10-12 days in a total winter season. Average temperature is around 15-25 degrees. Spring and autumn are mild, but often wet and unpredictable. Especially between April-May and September-October the climate is really good for visits to Istanbul. The best time to visit Turkey depends on what you are interested in. For the ancient sites, April, May, September and October are really good months because of the pleasantly warm weather. On the other hand, summer is very hot and perfect for lounging by the sea or a pool. Whatever the season is, guided round tours Turkey are always available.
