Istanbul, the largest city in Turkey, is a popular tourist destination full of history and amazing architecture leftover from the Ottoman Empire, including the Blue Mosque and Haghia Sophia. U.S. News and World Report determined that the best time to visit Istanbul is between September and November. During these three months, Istanbul sees fewer visitors causing a drop in rates. Additionally, the temperature stays in the 60s and 70s during the day, an ideal climate for site seeing. The summer season, while popular with tourists, is also the most expensive and the hottest, with high humidity and long waits at most attractions. On the other hand, the winter and spring seasons can be wet and cold, though might offer some good rates.
