Act Like A Caesar Or Sultan And Conquer Istanbul In 48 Hours!

If you don't mind admitting that you are a flashpacker with an unquenchable thirst for the uncharted, undiscovered and a good cup of piping hot Turkish apple tea, you'll love Istanbul. With so many pages of history built on top of one another and such a wealth of unique attractions it can seem daunting upon first arrival. Especially if you intend to jam over 3000 years of history into two days and still hope to have time to grab a kebab or chill at a hubby-bubbly cafe. What follows is not a silly best of list or some glitzy countdown. This is a complete step by step itinerary that you can follow to experience the best of Istanbul in two hectic, but unforgettable days! For a little more info on any of the 11 magical places mentioned check out my full article at The Flash Pack Blog. Yala and enjoy Habibi!
