If you're planning to see Istanbul's top tourist attractions,the easiest place to base yourself is Sultanahmet,Istanbul's Old City,which is a short stroll from all the city's major historical attractions.The Blue Mosque,TopkapıPalace and the Aya Sofya are all within a five minute walk,and many hotels in the area have stellar views of these buildings as well as out to the Bosphorus from their rooftop terraces.Some things worth you experience.
Pet the stray cats
Istanbul is a city were cats reign supreme.The strays are well taken care of by locals who leave out food,water,and even pillows for these cats to sleep on.
Visit the Chora Church
The Church of the Holy Saviour in Chora may not be the largest of the Byzantine churches,but it’s certainly known for being one of the most beautiful.The highlight are the various mosaic panels which recreate biblical scenes and still dazzle centuries later.
