It may well be busy when you arrive - but leaving won't be a problem (about 30 mins - or even less with some drivers :-).

I would even gather both times are pretty convenient. To get to Sultanahmet you do not need to take the motorway, but you can take the coastal road, lots of traffic lights but no real traffic jams.

Sundays are the best days to drive with the exception of the Bayram days, they are the worst!

Good luck!
