If so, head to Area Fener where you will be able to relax from big city life and enjoy a truly aristocratic atmosphere. Fener is also known as the main Christian district in Istanbul. During many centuries, the richest and most noble families lived there. Beautiful stone houses that have remained since that time still look absolutely fascinating with facades decorated with flowers and treillages on windows painted in different colors. The absence of numerous travelers is another advantage of this calm and clean district. Only sometimes one can see a romantic couple that admires the historical splendor in complete silence.
