Store your luggage around Istanbul with Bounce

Once the capital of the Roman Empire, the Byzantine Empire, the Ottoman Empire and Turkey, Istanbul is one-of-a-kind and a bucket list staple to many travelers. Today, the most populous and most popular city in the country sits on two continents, Asia and Europe, divided by the Bosphorus Strait. So, it’s expected to see a diverse culture, history, cuisine and tradition here.

Istanbul served many empires and was renamed many times. It was once called Byzantium, New Rome, and Constantinople. It wasn’t until 1930, under the rule of Kemal Ataturk that the city got the name Istanbul. Due to its rich history, Istanbul has a number of cultural and historical attractions. It ranks 8th on the list of most visited cities in the world on the Global Destinations Cities Index, with 13.4 million visitors a year. 

Whether you’re itinerary lists viewing intriguing paintings at the Istanbul Museum of Modern Art, touring the stunning Hagia Sophia, or strolling through Istanbul parks like Fethi Pasa Grove, you’ll be busy every minute you’re in this bustling city.

Istanbul city guide

Top things to do in Istanbul

As a city of multiple cultures, such as Middle Eastern and European, Istanbul offers plenty of things to see and do that’ll hardly fit into one weekend. The city offers a bit of everything for everyone, from spice bazaars and modern malls, to centuries-old museums, hammams, and landmarks like the Hagia Sophia, the Haydarpasa train station, or the Sirkeci Gar train station. Whether you like to shop, go museum hopping, or get a taste of Istanbul cuisine, this city will have you in awe every step of the way. 

Museums in Istanbul

Istanbul has such a rich history and has served many empires, that it’s no surprise it has a number of museums to tell the city’s history throughout the ages. Whether you’re a history buff, an architecture lover or an art aficionado, you’ll love Istanbul’s museums. 

Topkapi Palace 

Located east of the Fatih District, the Topkapi Palace is both a library and a museum which also served as a royal residence of the sultans during the Ottoman Empire. Inside, you’ll find large collections of artifacts, ornaments and treasures, ceremonial rooms, courtyards, and the Imperial Harem where the sultans lived with their wives, children and concubines.    

Topkapi Palace bag policy

Security measures in Istanbul museums and mosques are pretty strict, and everything goes through a scanner. While you can bring a small personal item with you, it’s best to leave backpacks and suitcases behind. We offer convenient luggage storage options near Topkapi Palace and we take bags of any size for a fixed price. Leave your stuff with one of our vetted partners in a secure location, no matter your museum-hopping plans.

Hagia Sophia 

Hagia Sophia is Istanbul’s most treasured landmark. It was built as a Christian church in the 6th century and has changed its purpose through the ages several times. During the Ottoman Empire, it was converted into a mosque and became a museum in 1935 during Kemal Ataturk’s rule. In 2020, this cultural and historical building was officially converted back into a mosque. Today, with its marvelous architectural grandeur, the Hagia Sophia is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the most visited tourist places in Istanbul. 

Hagia Sophia bag policy

You’re not allowed to carry extra large baggage in Hagia Sophia. There are no storage lockers available, so make sure to leave whatever heavy items you have with us. For your convenience, we have luggage storage locations near Istanbul’s top attractions, so you can easily drop off your belongings for a few hours and explore Istanbul and its terrific museums hands-free.   

Turkish and Islamic Arts Museum

If you’re interested in Islamic arts and cultures, this museum is a must. Located in the iconic Sultanahmet neighborhood in the Fatih district of Istanbul, just across from the Sultan Ahmed Mosque also known as the Blue Mosque, this museum is the first to bring together Turkish and Islamic art in one place. Inside, you’ll find impressive collections of Turkish rugs, tiles, Islamic calligraphy, glassware, woodwork, ceramics and more. 

Turkish and Islamic Arts Museum bag policy

Like most museums in Istanbul, this museum doesn’t offer a luggage storage office or any luggage lockers. You only need a few hours to explore the museum’s collection, and you can easily find Bounce luggage storage facilities in many places nearby. Unlike many luggage storage companies in Istanbul, we offer cheap luggage storage for bags of any size. In addition, we offer $10,000 BounceShield™ protection, so rest assured your things are safe with us.

  Istanbul is packed with museums and most won’t store your luggage or heavy bags. Before visiting a museum in Istanbul, make sure to check their opening hours, accessibility and bag policy online. And with so many Bounce luggage storage locations in Istanbul, there’s no need to haul your luggage around when you go museum hopping.  

Shopping in Istanbul

There are plenty of shopping opportunities in Istanbul. You’ll find anything from Turkish rugs, oriental spices and traditional coffee pots at the bazaars, to exclusive designer outfits in modern shopping centers. 

Grand Bazaar

Ask anyone and they’ll tell you the best place to shop in Istanbul is the Grand Bazaar. If you like to talk a bargain, try out your skills here. This bazaar is one of the largest and oldest markets in the world and it’s worth taking the trip. There are over 4,000 shops and more than 60 streets to discover, so it’s quite the journey. Just make sure you bring a friend along to help you carry all of your shopping bags.

Galata Port

Located on the seafront in the Karakoy district, this newly opened shopping area is the ultimate shopping experience for everyone who appreciates the waterfront. Also a new cruise ship port, the lively area is home to a number of restaurants, cafes, and promenades. You’ll find anything here, from European fashion and local designers to big international designer names.   


If you’re not into bazaars, and looking to splurge, head down to the Nışantası district and treat yourself to some high-class brands like Hermes, and Burberry. Zara and Mango are also popular here if you prefer high-street fashion.  

If you’ve bought all your gifts, cashmere sweaters, spices, rugs and souvenirs, but you still want to continue exploring the best of Istanbul, use our Bounce app. Find a place to stow your shopping finds and continue on your adventure.

Dining in Istanbul

Turkish cuisine is widely popular, but Istanbul offers the best of both European and Middle Eastern fare. Whether you want to dine overlooking the Bosphorus or dip your fingers into a sauce in one of the traditional bazaars, Istanbul has a number of restaurants to satisfy every palate.  


When in Istanbul, you must try kebabs, meze and other Turkish specialties. A Michelin-star restaurant, Aheste is the perfect blend of modern Turkish and Middle Eastern, and serves the best of both, with a tasting menu and delicious cocktails. Unlike other upscale dining places in Istanbul and Beyoglu district, Aheste offers an informal atmosphere, with a laid-back service and industrial-style design.


Located in the Sultanahmet Square in the heart of the city, Matbah is, although touristy, one of the best restaurants in the city center that serves dishes pertaining to royal Ottoman cuisine. Discover Istanbul eating like the sultans and enjoy beautiful views of the iconic mosque. 

Las Tapas

Don’t let the name fool you, this place is a traditional Turkish restaurant serving anything from traditional shish kebabs, doners, lahmacun (Turkish-style pizza), and kofte (Turkish meatballs), to pizza, french fries and vegetarian meals. Being close to Topkapi Palace makes it the perfect stop to recharge after touring the museum. 

Don’t worry about bringing luggage with you when you go dining in Istanbul. Most restaurants won’t have a left baggage office to store your things.
