Istanbul Tourism: Best of Istanbul
A spellbinding city where cultures collide
Over the centuries, many cultures have added their mark to Istanbul. Today, you can experience those influences firsthand by exploring its mahalles (neighbourhoods). From the holy sites of Sultanahmet and the 19th-century European elegance of Beyoğlu to the high fashion of Nişantaşı, the vibrant cafe society of Kadıköy and the football-loving streets of Beşiktaş, it’s easy to see why travellers say that Istanbul isn’t just one city, but multiple cities within one.

- ByTripSavvyWhere to Stay on a Romantic Getaway in IstanbulIstanbul, one of the most romantic and sensual cities in the world, is a magnificent place for a honeymoon or vacation for two. Its mix of ancient and modern; the sights and sounds of the streets, bazaars, and calls to prayer; and the proximity to water, from the Golden Horn to the Bosphorus, present an exceptional environment for a romantic getaway. Istanbul is so exciting, in fact, that you'll need a serene place to retreat at when you finish touring and exploring for the day. In order, these are top choices for sophisticated and sensual places for couples to stay. All but the last three are on the city's European side.11 items
