Geneva — Istanbul Flights
To get to Istanbul from Geneva, you can travel with UIA by choosing the options that suit you best. You can board the PS486 flight in Geneva Airport that will bring you to Boryspil Airport in Kyiv. Afterward, flight PS715 will head for Istanbul Ataturk International Airport.
On your journey back, though, you can either fly to Kyiv by taking PS716 flight and then switch it to PS485 heading for Geneva, or you can stay in Kyiv for the evening. To do that, you’ll have to board the PS714 flight to Kyiv. You’ll spend the evening and the night there and then fly back to Geneva by grabbing a PS485 flight. Don’t forget that to travel cheaper, you should buy your tickets in advance.
Have you ever wondered about sultans, their lives, and the harems they kept? If the answer is yes, the first thing you should visit in Istanbul is the Topkapi Palace. Regal and luxurious, it’s been home to Istanbul’s royalty for many years. You’ll be able to learn interesting historical bits, see the palace and the entire city that become visible from there.
Hagia Sophia Museum is a perfect place for you if you’re interested in the history and culture of Istanbul in particular and Turkey in general. It has served as a church, a mosque, and now it’s a huge museum full of all possible kinds of artwork gathered throughout hundreds and hundreds of years. You’ll be able to learn a lot about the city and the county there, as well as participate in the museum’s tradition of making a wish.
To save up on your travel expenses, make sure to get a Panorama Club membership. You’ll be able to get free miles every time you choose one of UIA flights or rent a car with one of its partners. Later, you can change them for special discounts to make your flights cheaper.
