City breaks & Short breaks in Istanbul
Formerly Constantinople and a cornerstone of Greek mythology, Istanbul
is a great place to go for a brief city break or long weekend. Its aging and historic parts of the city, such as Fatih, the oldest district, are well worth the time for a history buff. Also littered around the city are several buildings of worship worth seeing, such as the Blue Mosque, the Church of Saint Sergius and Bacchus, and the Chora Church. Find alternative styles of accommodation
across the world such as b&bs in Helsinki
. While in Istanbul, you should visit a Turkish cafe and if you can, try to find someone to read your fortune in your coffee grounds. Much like tea leaves, this type of prophesy is based upon how the leftover grounds settle on the sides of the cup. Finally, no holiday would be complete without a visit to the Dolmabahce Palace. Although you only have a few days, there is definitely enough in Istanbul and Turkey to keep you for months.
City Breaks in the heart of Istanbul
If you are looking at hostels and hotels, stop. There is a better way to see Turkey or the world on your next city break. Rather than sit among foreigners in a hotel lobby, stay like those who have booked apartments in Taipei
, by staying with a local who can talk to you about what it is like to live in the city and how to best get around. Not only will you see the sites in the city but you will also be able to experience a little bit of Turkish culture. With Wimdu
you can find these types of listings, viewing their profile and making a reservation all on our page whether it be apartments in New York
. On each profile hosts can post pictures of their place, brief descriptions of their rules—like if they allow pets—and a calendar with their availability. You can also read the reviews of past guests to ensure that you are comfortable with your choice. A city break
may be brief but it doesn’t have to be superficial. Make it something special by staying in an authentic abode!
