I've been thrice so far in Istanbul and I will probably keep on coming back.
Here are the places I have visited so far:
Grand Bazaar, Spice Market, Blue Mosque, Hagia Sofia, Galata Tower, Underground Cisterne, Archaeology Museum, Topkapi Palace, Dolmabahce Palace
(this means, I have yet to visit Princes Islands, among others)
I've joined a tour of Istanbul by night where we watched belly-dancing while having a fine Turkish dinner. Also joined a Bosphorus Tour twice. The first time the wind was cold so I had headache afterwards. The second time it was just perfect as it was on a fine summer day.
My most favourite thing to do is visiting the hamams.
I can not tell by looking at this photograph. I've to grab a map :D

- Cons:Air pollution
