Earlier in the year, I spent a pleasant fortnight in Istanbul. My mission: to seek out the Byzantine ruins (and there were many, tucked away in narrow alleys or hidden underground). I visited the palace region, the land walls, the Galata region (the Military museum north of the city is a must) and the Mese (the Imperial Way). Stirring stuff, and there was so much I didn't have time to see!
Loads of pics and snippets of history here: http://www.gordondoherty.co.uk/writeblo ... tantinople
