  1. This virtual tour was very bright and cheery. Istanbul has been on my cards for long. Last year, I had my 2 hours halt at the airport but I could not step out to see the city. The airport had crazy handicrafts, sweets and other colourful souvenirs The architecture is fascinating and I am sure once everything is fine, I will be going to Istanbul some day… Would love to have some fresh fruits from there and that pomegranate juice.

  2. Wow what a visual treat this was. Absolutely fantastic through high quality images.It was like being there for me. I loved every bit about Istanbul.Your story is beautifully done covering all the aspects when we look forward to when visiting a new city. I really love the colors all around including the houses, the streets and the restaurants.The bridge connecting the two continents is so historic and the view is so nice.

  3. I love that even though I cannot travel at the moment I was able to take this virtual tour of Istanbul. Such beautiful and colorful streets. I love how you have shown different aspects like the markets, or the houses, the shops with the rugs, the food – oh I wish I could taste the food. So much personality is showing though in your pictures and it made me feel as if I was there.

  4. wow! with those photos you shared you toured me without spending a centavo. The murals and architectural designs are what I love most. The Hagia Sofia is truly a beauty and I want to spend more time here.

  5. All beautiful pictures and they transported me right back! I love the architecture too, especially Blue Mosque and Hagia Sophia. Your aerial view from Galata Tower is gorgeous! Even the colorful streets of Istanbul and the people, the street art, all these pictures remind me of how lively it is and what an amazing experience to just walk around Istanbul, especially on the Istiklal Street!

    1. These photos are certainly gorgeous and make me feel like I’m walking through history. I don’t know about you, but photos like these make me absolutely astonished because I often wonder at who else in history marveled at the same angle that I am examining right now. Beautiful collection!

  6. Hagia Sofia is an incredible place! I could stare at the ceiling all day. Such beauty! The grand bazaar would be very interesting to explore and see the culture! So much to take in!

  7. Istanbul has been on my list for a long time, What an interesting city! Hagia Sophia looks so stunning. I have always wanted to walk down an umbrella street, they are so great for a photo op! I love the food photography, Im craving some turkish tea now!

  8. You have listed the places to go in the exact order of how I would want it. For quite some time, I have been keen on seeing the Hagia Sofia and I know that I would be spending a lot of time there. Did not realize that Istanbul has so much of street art. Now that would be something to watch out for. I have always loved the Turkish markets.

  9. Thanks for this great post, it reminds me of my great trip to Istanbul a few years ago. What a fabulous city! Hagia Sofia was perhaps my favorite spot and you captured its interiors beautifully. Great street photos too!

  10. Magnificent! I love those ceilings on the Hagia Sofia and the Blue Mosque. So colorful! Your eyes must have been really dazzled. Those lamps in the market are also beautiful! That and a rug are definitely souvenirs to pick up. Did you try the Turkish hammams? What’s the experience like?

    1. I was not having time for hammams and so missed it. Only 4 days in Istanbul is really very less as it has so much to see

  11. All I have now is to travel via pictures and you just helped me do that in an amazing way. Istanbul looks colorful and so lovely through your pictures. I love all of them – whether it’s the mural art, the picture of the cat, streets of Istanbul, Bosphorus connecting two continents, you strolling in Grand Bazaar, must not forget to mention the grand interior of Hagia Sophia.

  12. Istanbul really is a gem of a city! Everyone who has been raves about the great mix of culture and food. The Blue Mosque is on our list of places that we want to see up close as soon as we can safely travel. Now we are craving a cup of strong Turkish Tea and Donar Kabab. Thank you for sharing some beautiful pictures.

  13. I also enjoyed hearing about the mingling of two cultures! I am not sure how Turkish tea taste but I would love to try it! The vibrant colors always leave me feeling inspired!

  14. On the travel wish list! Would love to visit Istanbul. Your post was a lovely picture walk through. The architecture looks stunning inside and out. I love all the colour in the buildings. Some beautiful views that show me why Istanbul needs to stay on my travel wish list.
