I just have one weekend in Istanbul and I was wondering what would be the best area to stay, so I close to the main attractions? Or does anyone have a good recommendation?

    I would suggest the Taksim or Sultanahmet areas of Istanbul would give you the best central locations for exploring. Istanbul has lots of historical sites - split between the Asian and European sides, so be prepared to do a lot of walking etc, although the metro and the water taxis are good ways to get round.

    One weekend is a very short time in Istanbul but I would recommend the following places:
    Hagia Sophia
    Sultan Ahmet Mosque
    Underground cisterns which are amazing
    Boat ride on the Bosphorous
    and if you are feeling brave, then a trip to the bazaar is a must

    There are lots of good restaurants, bars and places to sit and watch the world go by. over 7 years ago
