Istanbul Guide

Istanbul, Turkey

Planning on a trip to Istanbul as part of your holiday in Greece? Istanbul, or Constantinople as we Greeks call it is one of the world's greatest and most beloved cities. In fact it has been said that if the whole world was one country, Istanbul would be its capital.  My Istanbul Guide will answer many of your questions and give you some ideas how best spend your time in one of my favorite places. Read the various pages and look at the photos and then you can follow the links to Fantasy Travel, who can help you book your trip between Greece and Turkey, or just Turkey if you like.
