Enjoy historic, electric Istanbul from your own holiday home
Feel the dual influences of Europe and Asia that shape the many faces of Istanbul. Be near top restaurants and shops in a historic flat above neighbourhood cafes and shops, or rest near the Bosphorus in a towering, modern condo with views.
The full Istanbul experience
After a busy day touring grand sights, enjoy a meal in the soothing, teal-tiled space at Karaköy Lokantası, and get to know old-fashioned Ottoman cuisine among locals. With a cup of Turkish tea or raki liquor, enjoy mezze dishes like marinated fish and seafood or fried zucchini with yogurt.
Save room for the best baklava in town, just down the block at Karaköy Güllüoglu Manufacturing Plant, in the Karaköy district. Choose from a wild array of flavours and toppings, from classic with pistachio crumbles to chocolate with cream.
Sacred to many
The Byzantine-era Hagia Sophia has stood through the ages as a symbolic space for faithful people from different paths. First a church, then a mosque, and today a museum, visitors of all stripes can appreciate the Hagia Sophia's richly decorated, massive interior and its priceless religious paintings.
For visitors interested in historic mosques that are still actively in use, visit the Blue Mosque, also known as Sultan Ahmed Mosque, a city favourite. Constructed in the early 1600s and famous for its blue tile work, keep in mind that visitors will need to wait to enter during the call to prayer.
Spice and other treasures
For many, the sensational Grand Bazaar is what many holidaymakers think of first when they imagine Istanbul. Get lost in its narrow passageways, searching for that trip-defining purchase with a story behind it.
If you somehow didn't find that perfect souvenir or gift at the Grand Bazaar, then you're sure to find it at Galata Bridge, which has its own vendors and rows of restaurants. Be sure to admire the views along the way.
