Embrace laid-back island life
There is no better way to escape the bustle of Istanbul for a day than with a visit to the idyllic Princess’ Islands. Enjoy cool breezes and charming sights along the way to Büyükada, the largest Island of nine isles. Famous for her mild climates, lush vegetation, and ornate Ottoman Houses, all the islands are unspoiled by traffic. Instead of cars there are carriages, called phaetons, which is to be used to tour the island and its beautiful scenery studded with elegant mansions draped with purple bougainvillea, reminiscent of a more leisured and graceful era. For lunch there are many excellent fresh fish restaurants that line the seaside, gazing across the Asian shore of Istanbul, so close - though it feels worlds away.
You’ll be picked up with shuttle service car from your hotel.
