3 Days in Istanbul
I have had so many requests to do a tour guide of my favorite places to visit in Istanbul so I decided to do a 3 day Itinerary for those that are visiting for a quick stopover. This is my third visit to Istanbul as the last ones were all business trips so I didn’t get a chance to explore the city properly. So now I’m going to share some of my favorite spots not to miss! I highly recommend you stay in the Karakoy district of Istanbul, as it is within walking distance of every major attraction. I have stayed at the Raffles (stunning hotel), the W Istanbul (trendy hotel), and the 7-Hills Palace (boutiqueHotel) in Istanbul, and the Karakoy district by far is the best location. My stay at the JW Marriot Istanbul was outstanding. The hotel’s prime location, incredible breakfast buffet with views, and delightful staff created a five star experience.
Day 1 - Sultanahmet District
Day 2 - Balat, Cukurcuma & Istiklal Caddesi
Day 3 - Asia Side of Istanbul
