Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0710302142, Paperback)

Long acknowledged to be the "best travel guide to Istanbul" (Times of London) this classic work shows Istanbul the way it is seen at its best -- on foot. An informative guide and ideal companion, it describes major monuments in detail with reference to history and architecture. Although the main emphasis of the book is on Byzantine and Ottoman antiquities, Istanbul is not treated as a museum but as a living city, full of delights. Detailed walking itineraries are provided.

This classic guide to Istanbul by Hilary Summer-Boyd and John Freely - the 'best travel guide to Istanbul' ("The Times"), 'a guide book that reads like a novel' ("New York Times") - is here, for the first time since its original publication thirty-seven years ago, published in a completely revised and updated new edition. Taking the reader on foot through this captivating city - European City of Culture 2010 - the authors describe the historic monuments and sites of what was once Constantinople and the capital in turn of the Byzantine and Ottoman Empires, in the context of the great living city. Woven throughout are vivid anecdotes, secret histories, hidden gems and every major place of interest the traveler will want to see.
