    The Old City of Istanbul is essentially a triangle bounded by water on two sides and the Theodosian Walls on the third. Inside you'll find most of the major landmarks: palaces, mosques, churches and other landmarks. The Old City is more of a tourist destination while the residential and commercial districts of Istanbul can be found north of the Historic Peninsula and across the Bosphorus.

    In a city like Istanbul, old really means old! There are crumbling ruins everywhere you turn, and modern life is built on layers and layers of history. Amazing place!

    I could just hang out and people watch here for days. And the photography! Nice people, good food, interesting architecture...what's not to love?

    The best place in Istanbul to stay. It is centrally located to the major sites. A little far from the airport but only a 10 minute cab ride.

    The Old City from the top of the Galata Tower. Magical, mythical, one-of-a-kind Istanbul. Those adjectives are used to described a lot of cities (too many cities, in my opinion) but they undeniably fit this city like a well-worn glove.
