I had so much fun taking photos in Istanbul and you guys seemed to really like the on Instagram. I mentioned in my little guide to Istanbul that I couldn’t share them all in that post and would do another about my time with Walks of Turkey.
What I did see were the Blue Mosque, Basilica Cistern, Hippodrome, and Hagia Sofia which to be real, are kind of the big attractions. Of course there is SO much to see and do but these are kind of the if you go to Istanbul and don’t see these, you’re crazy type places.
Best of Istanbul (in photos)
I”ll start withe Blue Mosque!
From the Blue Mosque, you walk down the Hippodrome area to where the lawn meets the Hagia Sofia.
Now you’ll see the Hagia Sofia! Of course, you can go inside this as well!
Lastly, the Basilica Cistern
So, there you go! These were the main points that most tourists hit while in Istanbul. Of course, there are many more but these are simply the most stunning. If you want more details on how I spent my 10 days there (not just these 3 hours) then check out my mini-guide to Istanbul and my guide on the where to stay in Istanbul.
I also spent a lot of time in Istanbul shopping and wrote a little guide to shopping in the city. I hope you enjoyed these photos!
