using public transport for airport transfer

I know it may have been asked before, but coming from Attaturk Airport (International) on Sunday evening and going to Sultanamhet (near Eygptian Obelisk), what is the best way using public transport. Thank you in advance.

sof08, It has been asked a thousand times before but here again for you: Take the metro from the airport to Zeytinburnu , transfer to tram T1, and take the tram from Zeytinburnu to Sultnahmet stop. Walk to your hotel from tram stop. Use an Istanbulkart that you get at the metro station at Ataturk Airport, from a vending machine. This trip will cost you 3.60 TL/person using an individually owned Istanbulkart.

We did the exact same trip as suggested by Enigma a few hours ago and it is really easy, very cheap and took less than an hour. It's also a good introduction to the Istanbul area I think. We got off the tram at Sultanamet to see both the Blue Mosque and Aya Sofia and it just blows you away. It was the start of Ramadan tonight and the atmosphere is very special
