March to May and September to November are considered the best times to visit Istanbul. The Turkish city experiences spring in the former months and autumn in the latter. A patch of blue sky will follow you everywhere if you’re vacationing in either of the two seasons. During these seasons, the city is blessed with a spell of good weather. The climate in Istanbul is by and large a juxtaposition of oceanic, humid subtropical and Mediterranean. There are three different climate zones in the city, owing to its large size. That being said, Istanbul encounters four distinct seasons, namely the autumn season from September to November, the winter season from December to February, the spring season from March to May and finally the summer season from June to August. July is the hottest month in the year, while December is considered as the wettest period. Thunderstorms in the summer are usually followed by drizzling. The light spells of rain will certainly not derail your travel plans.
