Directions: From Ataturk Airport to Sultanahmet -
In the airport terminal, follow the signs to the Metro - Havalimaniairportstation, located in a subterranean passageway between the Domestic and International terminals. Board a Metro train bound for Aksaray, but get out at the Zeytinburnu station, the 6th stop.
Exit the Metro station, turn right. You will see a sign, Sirkeci Yonune Gider or *Sirkeci This Way*, go down the steps to the Zeytinburnu-Eminonu tram and hop aboard. If you need directions, ask for Tramvay nerede - trahm-vah-yee NEH-reh-deh, but you really cannot get lost here.
Because this is the western terminus of the tram line, you have a better chance of finding an empty seat than if you transfer to the tram at Aksaray.
Also, Zeytinburnu - zey-TEEN boor-noo is an easier, safer and less confusing station.
Ride eastbound to Sultanahmet, the 16th stop, the recorded station-stop announcement says sool-TAHN-ah-meht, and also BLOO mosk in English. Get out and you will be on Divan Yolu at the northeastern end of the Hippodrome with the Blue Mosque clearly in view.
