FAQs

Your Istanbul questions answered

Are there any hidden gems in Istanbul not commonly visited by tourists?

arrowUp

Absolutely. Venture beyond the well-trodden path to discover Istanbul's hidden gems like the neighbourhoods of Balat and Fener for their colourful historic houses, Yıldız Park for a tranquil escape, and the Princes' Islands for a car-free, serene day out. The Chora Church, with its stunning Byzantine mosaics, is another lesser-known site worth visiting.
