I am going to Istanbul for 3 days (technically 2.5 days) before I start my journey to the next country and need your support with the following queries.
I will arrive on Thursday at 1:00pm and leave on Sunday early morning which gives me technically 2.5 days.
Apologies guys in advance for silly questions :(
1) Is 2.5 days enough to see all the must sees of Istanbul ? I am interested in the Mosques Palaces and history not shopping ?
2) Do I need a tour guide for my site seeing ?
3) Could you guys please recommend me an itinerary for the 2.5 days in Istanbul which is going to be good enough for me to capture everything that I need to see ?
4) Can you recommend a hotel which is in between $80-$100 USD a night and convenient location for me to walk around the lovely city of Istanbul ?
