Get in

The local airport is called Samsun-Çarşamba Airport (IATA: SZF, ICAO: LTFH), 23 km from the city centre. There are flights from Istanbul and other big cities almost every day.

Get around





Pide is one of Samsun's delicious 'events' and has four different types available Kapalı, peynirli-yumurtalı (cheese&egg), pastırmalı-yumurtalı (spicy bacon&egg) and sucuklu-yumurtalı (Turkish wurst&egg) although there are some further varieties also possible such as spinach, kavurmalı etc.

The local people all eat pide every Sunday almost ritualistically.

These pides are totally unique to the city, so don't expect to find them anywhere else.
