I'm apologizing in advance for what is probably a REALLY stupid question, but I honestly don't know the answer and want to do the right thing when I'm in Istanbul!
When I go to the Blue Mosque, I know I need to take off my shoes. Now, I've read people saying to make sure to wear socks, but I'm not sure if that's just personal preference or an actual rule.
In other words... Can you be barefoot, or do you need to have socks on? How about stockings?
I'm asking because the shoes I bring will depend on this.
Thanks so much,
