We visited Istanbul in March 2017 not long after the bombings and attacks had taken place. We were there for 3 nights on a city break with BA from Heathrow.We experienced no trouble, the only military presence we felt was having bags searched when entering the grounds of the Topkapi palace. The locals were most friendly and very welcoming.



Would I go back again? MOST definitely, next time for a longer visit so I could see more of this fantastic city.:D
