Meet the Vibrant Karaköi in the City of Istanbul

Istanbul is undoubtedly one of the top cities in the list of travelers, like me. The place is stunning and worth seeing Istanbul’s neighborhoods, exploring every corner of every street. One of the places I loved the most was Karaköi.

The small hipster Turkish district is very reminiscent of the region of Vila Madalena, in São Paulo, and it is possible to explore in one day, so here is a hint of gold: spend at least a day exploring the neighborhood full of art galleries such as Istanbul Modern, bars, restaurants and cafes with lots of good music.

I can say that Boca Tashin Street is certainly the high point of Karaköi. There you see the true heart, the essence, of Istanbul.

On my tour of the beautiful Karaköi, I chose this super stylish look: The Litt red dress stole the scene with all the charm and sensuality it brings, with the deep neckline and long ruffled sleeves. To balance and ensure comfort in the look, Tommy boots were my choice.

Check out how the photos of this amazing day of sightseeing in Istanbul and be sure to comment on what you think of the look, whether it was in Karaköi or if you would like to go!

Meet the Blue Mosque of Sultanahmet

During my last trip to Istanbul, I could not miss visiting one of the main religious and tourist sites in the city.

I always like to know and visit temples and churches when I go to other countries, for architecture and also to know more about that place. Most of the religious points in the cities where I pass are only allowed entry, mainly speaking of women, with shoulders and legs covered, besides the head. And this is the case of the Blue Mosque of Sultahnamet.

The famous Istanbul mosque is the only one containing 6 minarets. It was built four centuries ago, in the time of Sultan Ahmed in the intention of making a temple bigger than the Church of Saint Sophia. Over time the place that was once used only for Muslim prayers became, also, a tourist spot.

When it comes to architecture the mosque is not to be missed. Built in the classical Ottoman style, its interior is as beautiful as the exterior. The name “Blue Mosque” came from the reflection of blue mosaics covering the entire structure.

Unfortunately, it is not allowed to enter with photographic equipment nor of filming in the mosque, then I indicate that, if they want to take good photos the inside, enter with their equipment covertly and well hidden.

Speaking now in look, as I said before, entrance is not allowed with arms/shoulders, legs, and head uncovered. So here’s a tip: Always wear long, long-sleeved dresses and scarves. Shorts, pants and mini skirts are barely seen in these places, so the dress is really the best choice. For this tour, I chose this beautiful blue dress and how I forgot my scarf, everything is not perfect (rs), I had to improvise and cover my hair with this beautiful sheet.

Check out now the photos I took in this beautiful place and the chosen look. Do not forget to comment if you went to Istanbul and share your experience.

I know how hard it is to decide the date of travel. Heat, cold, vacation, high season, low season. And now, what to do? How to choose? CALM! I came on a mission to help you and today, the tip goes to anyone who wants to go to my most recent destination: Istanbul.

I do not intend to wrap you up definitely with all my traveling experience, I declare that the best months to visit Istanbul and its wonders are from April to September when it comes to temperature, but we will vary slightly the period within those months of according to what each one seeks.

The period considered the best is due to the little amount of rain in the spring and summer and the most pleasant temperature that allows beautiful photos on sunny days in front of the historical monuments, ensuring sightseeing tours without worries.

During the colder period in the city, from October to March, temperatures drop to 3 ° C and snow is guaranteed for at least 20 days. Okay, snow is beautiful, Turkey itself looks beautiful in the winter, but it would disrupt your tour of Istanbul.

The sights there are not made for a visit in the extreme cold, the city is small and you can explore on foot, the activities in the city do not include Ski, so it would be very difficult to really enjoy everything that is provided.

For this reason, I suggest that you plan your visit to Istanbul in the hot spring/summer months, from April to September, as well as being easier to get to know the monuments of the city, you can even plan to take a tour of the Bosphorus Strait.

As I said at the beginning, there are two possibilities within this period: go between April and June or from July to September.

If your intention is to meet many people, be in a city full of different people and enjoy the tourist buzz to the maximum, without doubt, you must go between July and September. It is the summer vacation long awaited by students and families planning to travel.

Now, as it is not a holiday season, nor a time of year when many are willing to travel, the months of April to June are calmer to make international travel. As a result, Istanbul is a city that is a little more empty, although it still receives many tourists, it is easier to enjoy the city as a local enjoys in this period.

I chose to go in April, I got quite enjoyed my trip and I stayed in a wonderful hotel, which provided me with a lot of relaxation. Now all you have to do is decide when to go, the tips you already have.

Meet the Four Seasons Hotel in Sultanahmet: the historical city of Istanbul

Hello hello, my dear ones,
this post is for you who accompanied me during my trip to Istanbul last week and I was asked to review the Four Seasons hotel in the Historical City.
Firstly, I will talk about the location that I found the ideal for those who come to visit the city of Istanbul for the first time. The hotel is only a block from all the main sights. So if you’re going there, stay in this area for one or two nights at most.

The other nights I recommend the Bosphorus region, where the locals go and are located some of the coolest restaurants and bars.

The four seasons Sultan Ahmet is quite small and has no pool, beauty services, and a satisfactory spa. But I understood after understanding a little about the historic tower of the hotel, which in the 60s was a prison used to imprison young writers, musicians, and artists, even there is the story of the movie “midnight express”.

The Seasons restaurant sits inside a glass pavilion in the center of the hotel garden where you can enjoy tasty meals and the famous Sunday brunch surrounded by stunning décor with Turkish art and Ottoman-era features.

The Hotel also has the A’YA Lounge on the terrace which allows a beautiful view of the historic center. The Lounge serves alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages and also offers a menu of savory snacks.

Despite being small, I had a good experience at the hotel. Treating accommodation The Four Seasons offers rooms with very comfortable mattresses and espresso machine. The individual bathroom disappoints a bit for being very small, but nothing that would disrupt my comfort in the hotel.

Talking about the architecture of the hotel, because it is an old building from the Ottoman period, it is considered a place with neoclassical style. It’s lovely to see how time only values ​​these places.

The interior of the hotel is all decorated with works of Turkish craftsmen and without abandoning the Ottoman decorations, present all over the place and also has a very beautiful landscaped courtyard.

The location of the hotel is also very good but, as I said at the beginning of this post, I recommend staying in the historic area for a maximum of days so that you can enjoy your trip more in the good restaurants and ballads of Istanbul.

The Four Seasons is privileged by the incredible view of the Blue Mosque, one of the most visited places in the city.
