While the Turkish capital is inherently modest, it greatly survives on intellect and vigour. Its streets dotted with the most charming cafes and restaurants will transport you into a different era altogether and get your creative juices flowing. This economic giant also boasts of some exceptional museums and monuments and is therefore an integral part of every Turkey itinerary.
