Travel Blogs from Istanbul
... on the day. the ruins along the coast are impressive but I think they should do a little more restoration to justify the high admission price. I understand the Ottoman sold a lot when they were broke so the stuff is scattered in museums all around the world but I am sure they could do a little more. Having said that they are getting away with it by the look of the crowds everywhere, again considering I am before high season. Entry was $10-$15 at most ...
... waterfront the directions to our hotel we finally arrived here - very thankfully on my part. Tor was a real trooper and full of confidence just at the stage when I was really sick of it.

Now a museum and seemed bigger than St. Peter's as less decorated and darker. Noted the lean on some pillars - who needs to go to Pisa? Magnificent building; climbed up to top level, and soaked up the atmosphere. Lucky so few tourists, relatively, and those are mostly Korean. Next another Déjà-vu. ...
