If I could imagine what it would be like to be a Turkish princess it might involve this every day… literally you are bathed, scrubbed, bubbled and oiled, hair washed and combed with your choice of scent (I picked rose!) all on a beautiful white marble throne resplendent with carved marble sinks and dim glowing domed ceilings. All of this is traditionally followed by a deep tissue massage.
Nothing like this to clear your mind after an 11 hour flight (I flew SFO > FRANKFURT > IST).
Istanbul 360, restaurant and night club with incredible 360 views of the city’s glittering horizon punctuated with glowing mosques and minarets
Top of Kapi Sarayi, Palace: Loved the gold star latticed window panes framed with intricately carved wooden shutters and technicolor Iznik glazed tiles. We spotted the same pattern as our Moorish Hoops here! Pattern upon pattern defines this Turkish style.
