Monocle Istanbul Travel Guide
The Monocle Travel Series reveals our favourite places in each city we cover, from the ideal route for an early-morning run to the best spots for independent retail. Full of surprises and quirks, they also feature detailed design and architecture pages, neighbourhood walks to get you away from the crowds and our favourite places to eat, be it tasty fast food or something truly celebratory.
Our Istanbul Travel Guide will point you in the right direction for the finest places to eat, drink and shop. We can also navigate you through the city's architectural gems, from Ottoman follies converted into art centres to backstreet Byzantine beauties.
