    waiting for the answers please !!
  • Hello,

    You can get on a metro to Kabatas Station that is last stop. Then get on a tram from Kabatas Tram Stop to Sultanahmet. Or, You can get on a taxi from Taksim, it takes only 10-15 min then cost you max. 20 TL for 2 person.

    For Bursa, I highly reccomend you to join a tour for Bursa. There are daily tours departing Istanbul

    Best Regards

  • Hello,

    Most of people peaople speak engilsh.
    Bursa was first capital of Ottoman Empires and it has great mosques, silk market and very nice Olympos Mountian with pine tree, also you will be able to take cable car up to Olympos Mountain.
