Aside from the Ottoman structures in Istanbul, there is a treasure waiting to be discovered! Our guide Ertuğrul revealed this treasure to us 🙂
It is sad to see the Roman buildings abandoned and worn, the places we visited made me feel like I was living in those days.
We had no problem meeting our guide, we were already informed in advance about how to get to the meeting place. The tour was as we expected.
