Istanbul: Istanbul is one of the truly great romantic cities, with it´s skyline studded with domes and minarets. Its history tracks back from Byzantium to Constantinople to its place at the head of the Ottoman Empire. Fragments of this varied architectural inheritance are visible, with stunning Ottoman mosques, classical columns, Byzantine structures, ancient city walls and fine churches. Today Istanbul hums as Turkey's cultural heart and good-time capital. With the buzzing atmosphere of the pedestrian Istiklal Caddesi and its hundreds of bars, cinemas, art galleries, restaurants and bistros, the city seems more funky and cosmopolitan than ever.
