is one of the truly great romantic cities, straddling the Bosphorus with its skyline studded with domes and minarets. In this city, you can tramp the streets where crusaders and janissaries once marched; admire mosques, peer into the sultan’s harem; and hunt for bargains in the Grand Bazaar. Side by side with Old Istanbul you’ll find hip bars and clubs, flashy executives, malls and haute cuisine. All this history, hustle and bustle coexist around the spine of the Bosphorus, a constantly busy, heaving mass, dotted with ships and ferries, which provides the link between Europe and Asia. Istanbul has architecture, art, nightlife, cuisine, history, religion, shopping more than enough of it, at prices which are among the lowest in Europe.
