Hi theheavymob,

Congratulations on your 25th anniversary!

1. 50 lira

2. Cold. Mostly below 10 degrees Celcius. Can rain or even snow. Who knows.

3. Use the search box you can find at the top of this page. Type in "x days itinerary istanbul" and see what would be of more interest to you before making your draft itinerary. We will be happy to help you to finetune your daily schedules if you will ever need our help then.

Happy planning,

Borus

If you book directly with them many hotels offer free airport pick-up for a minimum of 3 days stay, you could look into this also, ask your hotel about it. And congrats on your silver anniversary:)

Check with your hotel but personally even if they dont offer free pickup my opinion would be to have them arrange a private pickup for you and you pay them the fee. Was about $40 US or 30 Euro.

That way someone is waiting with your name on the board at the exit and you dont have to worry about the taxi scams.

Also please read the threads about taxi scams ( we fell for one ) dont give them $50 lira bills whatever you do,. Try to have smaller bills
