Good morning from Istanbul! Head out to the Galata Tower, a medieval stone tower built on a hill overlooking the entire city.
Balat is one of the oldest districts and the best-hidden gems of Istanbul. Colorful, quiet sloping streets with old beautiful wooden houses.
Take a 7-min public bus ride from Fener towards our next stop: The Süleymaniye Mosque.
A short 10-minute walk to the river through the lively streets of Istanbul brings you to the Egyptian Spice Bazaar.
Right before sunset, climb up the rooftop of Kubbe Istanbul. Harun, a friendly and welcoming man, is the owner of the well-decorated rooftop.
The Blue Mosque (Sultan Ahmed Mosque) is Istanbul’s most famous landmark.
From the Blue Mosque, we already see our next stop; Hagia Sophia.
Topkapi, an enormous former palace (now a museum) for sultans and their families.
Time for lunch! It’s a 4-min walk from Topkapi to Yerebatan Street, with houses painted in the most vibrant colors.
A visit to the Grand Bazaar must be on your list of things to do in Istanbul.
Karaköy, a charming neighborhood filled with places to eat, have a coffee, and enjoy the great atmosphere.
