Neighborhoods and attractions in general also end up becoming more empty during this period. It is also possible to find snow in Turkish cities at this time of year.

(June July August)
European summer takes place in June, July, and August. This is the peak season in Europe and also in Turkey. The streets and cities are much busier and you can find people from all over the world visiting the beauties of the country. The walks are more pleasant and the warmer climate is an invitation for Turks and tourists to enjoy more of what the cities have to offer. As it is high season, the prices of hotels, restaurants, and tours go up due to the number of visitors in the country. It is also during this period that the Mediterranean Sea gains the clearest hues of the year. Summer in Istanbul and Cappadocia there is not as much movement as in the country’s coastal cities.
