Istanbul Highlights covered in Travel MagazineIstanbul has plenty of wonderful things to see and place to visit, but a recent article in a travel magazine highlighted what they believe are some of the best. You can decide for yourself when you visit the city with us on one of our singles holidays city breaks.

The Sultan Ahmed mosque, dubbed “The Blue Mosque” because of its 20,000 handmade blue Iznik tiles, is something that many visitors praise. With six immense minarets, this historic building dates back to 1616. Morning visits are best to avoid limited access during the five daily prayer times.

Another of the most popular excursions is a trip to the 15th-century Grand Bazaar. With 4000 shops and stalls, it’s a great place to lose yourself among local sights and smells. 58 meandering streets create an atmosphere of brilliant bedlam, but haggle hard to avoid being ripped off!

Even when you’re just travelling to different places or experiencing new things, Istanbul has an incredible atmosphere and you’re sure to fall in love with it.
