For Istanbul Türkiye honeymoon packages, you can come here every month of the year. However, September – November or April – June are the best times if you do not want the weather to be too cold or hot. There are many treasures to visit in the city, full of magnificent churches, centuries-old mosques and elegant restaurants. Istanbul unites two continents and the magic of the city connects everyone in a timeless manner.

In spring the entire coastal landscape becomes pink due to judas trees. You can see tulips everywhere because the tulip festival starts in Istanbul this season. Children welcome the spring running around the beach with kites in their hands. Cats all over Istanbul begin to stroll down the street with their kittens. If you come in the spring, a colorful city welcomes you.

Nightclubs organize spring parties. Restaurants call their customers by putting tables and chairs in front of their doors after the cold winter days. The best thing to do in Istanbul in spring is to watch the cheerful people on the streets full of florists, to get on the ferry to the city lines and throw bagels at the seagulls while making your journey across the continents or to have a picnic in the parks right next to the beach and enjoy the fresh air.

If you come in the autumn, romantic walks in the parks, cafés where you can escape from the rain, nice meals to enjoy while watching the unique view of the Bosphorus will be the little surprises of the city. In Istanbul, activities for couples do not have an end!

Istanbul is also ideal for summer lovers. Let’s say that your honeymoon is in summer and you came to Istanbul. Touring in the city is nice but you want to swim. Very easy! Go to the Princes’ Islands from the pier with the city line ferry.

If you want to have fun in the choppy waters of the Black Sea, go a little out of town to Kilyos. You can also join all day and night parties on the beaches of Kilyos. For lovebirds who prefer not to swim in the summer, we also recommend the Bosphorus tours by ferry.

Kartepe will be waiting for you when you come to Istanbul in winter. After visiting the historical and touristic places of the city, you can go to Kartepe on the Anatolian side to do snow sports, play snowballs or make snowmen.

Whenever you come to Istanbul, don’t go without watching Kızkulesi (Maiden’s Tower) at sunset. Maiden’s Tower whispers completely different secrets to newly-married couples watching it at sunset.

Whenever you come, you can be sure to carry many good memories in your luggage on the way home. In short, honeymoon hotels in Istanbul offer many opportunities for newly married couples who want to have a pleasant time.
