Istanbul is the best located city in the world with easy connections and short distances to Europe, North Africa and Middle East in all sides. Its location makes it a good short city break escapes. You can see the old town and historical buildings in 2-3 days. It was originally built on the European side, on the historical peninsula called “Sarayburnu” surrounded by the city walls, by being capital to three European empires. There’s one thing real , this unique beauty deserves to be enjoyed.
The Maiden Tower, you can take boat transfers from Üsküdar province.You can go to Üsküdar station from in Sarayburnu Penisula by Marmaray metro line which goes under the sea in two three minutes, by your Istanbulcard which costs you to own 3-4 eur.
The Galata Tower where from the first flight is experienced by made up wings of a human Hazerfen Ahmet Celebi. You can find more about the history of the tower. You can go there either by entering streets from Karaköy coast and climb or you can go there from the Istiklal Street in Beyoglu, Taksim.
Churches, synagogues and mosques are next to each other in Istanbul where you can see in older neighbourhoods.
I couldn’t add the Blue Mosque and Topkapi Palace Museum’s pictures, and many other important buildings. I will try to add them in the upcoming days. And please don’t judge Istanbul by its people, there’s a huge tourist flow and migration. Despite its over population the public transfers by the sea, under sea, ground, and underground are very well contected and safe. You can save your time by using public transports. Stay well!
