Our 6 day stay in July

Hi I have just realised that our stay 10th july - 16th july is Ramadam. We were going to do a walking /eating tour but now cant because of Ramadam, can anyone tell us are the hours museums open, shorter at this time and is there any other information that would be helpful for our stay this week.

whippets4ever, Only about 1/3 of the Turkish people fast and they respect those who don't. The restaurants are open during Ramadan. You do not need to worry about food during Ramadan.

There is no change in museum hours and they follow their regular schedule. There are some Ramadan festivities around Sultanahmet square. Just enjoy them. Those who fast break their fast at sunset so many restaurants will be full at that time.

good luck,
