Turkey is really high on my list of places I want to go but we decided on Africa for the honeymoon. But just last weekend I met a couple who did a Mediteranean cruise and they said that they favorite part was the stop at Istabul! And I know a family that traveled there several years ago and absolutely loved it. Said the people were awesome. But great salesmen. Apparently it is nearly impossible to leave the country without having bought at least 1 nice carpet!

I didn’t go for a honeymoon, but I went last year on a vacation and it was incredible. Where are you staying? I stayed in Sultanahmet, where all the historical sites are. It was so amazing to walk around with one fantastic experience after another all so close (Hagia Sophia, Blue Mosque,Grand Bazzar, my favorite was the Bascilica Cistern ). However, I also found things to quiet down at night. On the last day I went across the bridge (on the Asian side) and I wished that I visited there sooner. Much more modern, more restaurants and nightlife. So I don’t know what kind of trip you’re wanting, but it’s definitely worth a visit to explore both sides. Also, one of the best meals I ever had was at Asitane- it was a bit of a taxi ride from the city center but it was delicious and romantic- classic Ottoman cuisine. Have fun!

I went there a few years ago as part of my “Bar trip” after I took the Bar.  We loved it. Stayed in the historical part of the city and it was great.  So many things to see and do.  People are nice but always trying to haggle and get you to buy something so be prepared.

Friends of ours were in Turkey as part of a Mediterranean Cruise in September… they LOVED Turkey… found the history just so darn fascinating, and the people nice.

They spent 1-1/2 Days in Istanbul, and another day in Kusadasi, so they could see the Ancient City of Ephesus.  From what they’ve told us, and the pics they took, they’ve certainly peaked the imagination of Mr TTR and I (prior to their Travels I had no real interest in Turkey)

Lol, but then again who wouldn’t LOVE the vacation they took… a 12 Day Cruise around the Mediterranean that concentrated on Italy, Turkey… and the Islands of Greece !!
