Location of Sirkeci train station

Sirkeci Station is in the old city of Istanbul, in walking distance to Sultanahmet, Hagia Sophia, Blue Mosque, Grand Bazaar and Spice Bazaar. There are hundreds of hotels, shops and restaurants very close to station.

Sirkeci Station has strong bus (to European side of Istanbul), ferry (to Asian side of Istanbul) and rail connections.

Tram is just in front of the station. Marmaray (suburban system crossing Bosphorus) underground station is just under the station.

It used to be the main station for trains going in western direction including international trains, but there’s no train connection due to Marmaray project under construction.

  1. Hy! I bought my Eurail Global Pass and im visiting Istambul in August. From Istambul i want to go to Greece ( Santorini and Mykonos). Which bus i have to take from istambul or which connection i have to do? Please ill wait for the information so as to reserve also. Thanks!!


  2. There are some bus services to Greece. No experience about them.

    Or you can go to Bulgaria by train first and then another train to Greece.

    Last choice may be using ferry services from Turkey to a Greek island. There are ferry services from Bordum, Kusadasi, Marmaris as far as I know.


  3. Hi, i am planning a vacation in istanbul,
    How can i get ticket from sirkeci train station to florya station, can i book online? Or it is possible to find ticket at sirkeci station?
