"10 days in Istanbul" Itinerary Ideas Tip by dutchboycalledjan

Itinerary Ideas, Istanbul: 31 reviews and 60 photos


Last year we've been in Istanbul for 10 days. No problem: lots and lots to see and do and get of the beaten track. Very friendly people, easy to connect with. The Archaeological Museum, one of the best I've seen, can easily fill one day (I went twice). I happen to meet an Istanbul guy and we toured some of the smaller mosques (which used to be churches). Also, you can visit the botanical gardens, they are in the center of the town, but on a very steep part - so you couldn't build there, and offer fine views. I also did the Byzantine wall, it is not very interesting, but a nice walk.
