Travel in Istanbul

In Istanbul taxis are yellow and are very easy to obtain either by stopping those on streets or by requesting one through the hotel/congress centre concierges. The meter in the car applies and charges are in TRY, please note credit cards are not yet valid in all taxis.

Public Transport

Istanbul Public Transportation is efficient, convenient and safe but it may be very difficult to navigate if you do not know the language. Thus we suggest the use of taxis as they are very economically priced compared to most European cities.

By Bus

The congress venue is located near Taksim Square in the Harbiye area. Bus services run from locations such as Taksim, Eminonu and Mecidiyekoy to Harbiye. Harbiye Bus Station is approximately 5 minutes walking distance from the congress centre.

Bus services for the European Side:

By Metro

Istanbul Congress Center is also accessible by subway.
