The best time to visit Turkey

Spring (April to June) is probably the best time to visit Turkey. The weather is moderate throughout the country, the days are long, and the tourist rush of the summer holidays hasn’t quite begun.

Autumn (mid-September to October) is second best with mostly mild weather. However, the days are shorter, and rain may begin again in October.

The summer months can be quite hot, while winter is generally cool and rainy. In the arid interior and central plateau, seasons vary from one extreme to another as the mountains close to the coast prevent maritime influences. In this region, summers are especially hot while winters can be severely cold.
