"Wooden houses" Istanbul Favorite Tip by leffe3

Istanbul General: 533 reviews and 651 photos


Favorite thing: Most of the famed wooden houses of Istanbul have either been destroyed or, in the Sultanhamet region, been renovated and turned into hotels. But in some of the backstreets near Taksim Sqaure, you can still find a few fine examples.

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
