Alphonse de Lamartine, the 19th-century French writer and politician famously stated “if one had but a single glance upon the world, one should gaze upon Constantinople.” In the 21st century, it’s never been more true - Istanbul still manages to surprise and enchant every traveler. Travel and Leisure has named it a “World’s Best Trip”. It’s been honored as “Europe’s Best Destination 2013” by www.europeanbestdestinations.org. And TripAdvisor users have voted it a Travelers’ Choice 2013 Winner. So there’s really no question about why to visit - the only question is where to stay?
