Istanbul Mini Guide

Istanbul is an incredibly glamorous ancient city which sits on either side of the Bosphorus Strait across the Mamara Sea and the Black Sea and is one of the largest in Europe. 
Hiring a car will save you having to haggle over the price of a taxi or worry about being over charged. Take a hire car around the sights: Hagia Sophia, The Blue Mosque or the palaces of the Bosphorus or better still, take a boat trip up the river to see them all from the water. One of the palaces which you could drive out to see, the Dolmabahce, has parts of the staircase made from Baccarat crystal.
