Istanbul, one of the most romantic cities in the world. This was the place where John F. Kennedy Jr. took his bride Carolyn Bessette on their honeymoon in 1996. The city is situated on the borders of Europe and Asia. And with the architecture, the promenades along the water, the exotic mosaic of flavours, aromas and sounds it is easy to imagine yourself as a character in a tale from One Thousand and One Nights.
Stroll along the banks of the Bosporus, the river that divides Istanbul into east and west, with views of the Asian shore lined with palaces and picturesque old wooden houses. Enjoy stunning vistas of the city from restaurant Konyali after your visit to Topkapi Palace. And visit the Basilica Cistern, the beautifully illuminated underground water storage in the centre of the old town. It all sounds very romantic, but the true Arabian nights only start after sunset of course.
