“Visiting a museum with catholic and islamic features all together is something singular. You will not be able to see it anywhere else. Try one of the walking tours since you will enjoy better knowing what you see. Unless you are a museum fanatic a couple of hours are more than enough.”

“Vividly coloured spices are displayed alongside jewel-like lokum (Turkish delight) at this Ottoman-era marketplace, providing eye candy for the thousands of tourists and locals who make their way here every day. Stalls also sell caviar, dried herbs, honey, nuts and dried fruits. The number of stalls selling tourist trinkets increases annually, yet this remains a great place to stock up on edible souvenirs, share a few jokes with vendors and marvel at the well-preserved building. The market was constructed in the 1660s as part of the New Mosque, with rent from the shops supporting the upkeep of the mosque as well as its charitable activities, which included a school, hamam and hospital. The market's Turkish name, the Mısır Çarşısı (Egyptian Market), references the fact that the building was initially endowed with taxes levied on goods imported from Egypt. In its heyday, the bazaar was the last stop for the camel caravans that travelled the Silk Road from China, India and Persia. On the west side of the market there are outdoor produce stalls selling fresh foodstuff from all over Anatolia, including a wonderful selection of cheeses. Also here is the most famous coffee supplier in İstanbul, Kurukahveci Mehmet Efendi, established over 100 years ago. This is located on the corner of Hasırcılar Caddesi, which is full of shops selling food and kitchenware.”

“5. Kat Restaurant has an amazing view of the Bosphorus on the European side. During the day the view is one beauty. At night you have an entirely different atmosphere. If you catch the evening on a full moon, 5. Kat is the perfect place to view the full moon overlooking the Bosphorus. The service and food are great. Waiters are always pleasant . The appetizers, meat dishes and coctails are delicious. For a romantic evening, you will want to ask for Table #1. Make reservations ahead of time.”
