TravelPod Member ReviewsOran Hotel Istanbul
We stayed in a small, windowless room near the stairway. It was a bit noisy and cramped. The rooms were clean and the breakfast area was pleasant with good food.

So down the spiralling stair case I dizzily descended and started my way through the cobble stone streets. Once finding the bridge I was happy to have seen the old walls that once were holding the city strong and ...
... Constantine decided to move the capital city from Rome to Byzantium, renaming it Constantinople. He had the Hippodrome built during that time. It was said to be able to hold over 100,000 people who came to watch chariot races and other sporting events. Although not much of the original hippodrome is left, some of the decorations remain. One that we spent time at was the large obelisk. This obelisk was brought ...
... accessories. Cute! Thank you! We did not want to leave. I still dream of the vendor pushing his cart of hot, flaky biscuits on the cobblestones, yelling, "Balujaaaa," or something like that. Women purchasing and lowering their basket of money, then raising their basket to the third story, full of biscuits or Simit. Wonderful. Next we flew to Antalya, on the Turquoise Coast. This is near the start of the Lycian Way, a footpath to ancient Lycia. Look it up! Many people older ...
