  • The Walls of Theodosius have stood at the gates of the city for centuries, and approaching them today shows off this age. The walls are well worth checking out for a spectacular view of the city. Howe...  more »

  • To imagine such a structure stood strong over such a long distance defending the city, is truly fascinating. Some parts still exist in their true form. With a bit of care, am sure they will stand for many more years to come. Good walk in the park beside the wall. No entry fee applicable.
  • Nice walk by the ruins of probably the best city defense system of all times. Very small part of the length is fully restored. Most of the towers and walls are on the verge of collapse and it's a pity that this monument is so neglected. If renovated they could offer a nice walk from Marmara sea to Golden Horn and would be a major attraction.
  • Interesting, but empty. This is not the restored walls these are ruins. I think they are absolutely beautiful and they made great pictures.
  • Not bad
  • Nice

Where to stay in Istanbul

The bustling downtown core of old Istanbul is the popular choice among tourists wanting a short walking distance to the city's biggest attractions. Here you'll find hostel-style accommodations and reasonably priced and traditionally decorated hotels, as well as bed and breakfasts and inns with views overlooking the sea. Though often the most affordable, accommodations in the old city can be very overrun with tourists and street solicitors. If you seek a more relaxed stay, consider lodging near Taksim Square. This new, trendy neighborhood is a short 15-20 minute ride from the old city, but puts you closer to restaurants, shopping, and nightlife. Though the newer area of the city is a bit more upscale, you'll also find moderately priced hotels and some hostels. Look for luxury hotels in the western suburbs close to the airport, overlooking the banks of Bosphorus.
