Tourist Destination Type
Turkey's best-preserved Ottoman town is a fabulously photogenic place of skinny winding alleys crammed with finely restored wooden mansions which were once the home of wealthy merchants and now have been transformed into boutique hotels and restaurants.
There's little to actually do in town. Instead this is a place to simply stroll the streets and admire the old world atmosphere.
It's also known for its traditional sweets and crafts and there are plenty of cute shops where you can pick up a unique souvenir.
If you're road-tripping inland from Istanbul, this is a fantastic place to stop-off for the night and experience the historic ambience.
