istanbul turkey

Istanbul is an extraordinary city that straddles the Bosphorus, with one foot in Europe and one in Asia.

The Marmara Sea lies to the south of Istanbul, whilst the Black Sea is to the north. The western part of the city is in Europe, and the eastern is in Asia. The important water course that divides Istanbul is the Bosphorus. As a seaport, Istanbul is both the closest Asian city to Europe and the closest European city to Asia.

Geographical anomolies aside, this is a fabulous destination for a cultural visit.  The magnificent Hagia Sophia, Blue Mosque and the Topkapi Palace Museum are its three most famous sites.  Within easy walking distance of all three, is the sublime Four Seasons Sultanahmet, with a small spa and fitness studio.

Further along the Bosphorus, the Four Seasons Bosphorus is the perfect hotel for those that are looking for first class spa and fitness facilities.  Close by, is the excellent Shangri La, also with an excellent spa, but without the advantage of a large terrace overlooking the Bosphorus or an outdoor swimming pool.

For those simply looking for a good 4 star hotel to spend a night or two, we would recommend Hotel Lamartine in the Taksim district.

With plenty of easy internal flights from Istanbul to the south coast (Bodrum, Datca Peninsula, Gocek and Fethiye), we recommend combining a beach holiday with a visit to Istanbul.
