Daytrips from Istanbul
Traffic in Istanbul is terrible, but ferries can cruise you out of the city's snarl in minutes. Also, airfare within Turkey is shockingly inexpensive, so don't rule out the idea of flying somewhere near Istanbul just for the day.
Good for: Families, Groups, Seniors, Individuals
Seasons: Spring, Summer, Fall

Iznik

Iznik is a quiet village near Bursa that was a major pottery center during the Ottoman Empire. It's still well-known for beautiful pottery in the Ottoman style and for the ancient walls that still mostly surround the city. It's a few hours' drive from Istanbul, but the trip can be made shorter—and more entertaining—by hopping a ferry to Yalova and driving from there.

Anadolu Kavagi

Today Anadolu Kavagi is a sleepy fishing village located near the narrowest part of the Bosphorus. But the ruined castles, fortifications and ancient temples that surround it show how strategically important the area has been for millennia. The hills above the village give a beautiful view of the water and a welcome respite from city noise.
