Leider fehlen jegliche Fotos, die das Beschriebene veranschaulichen würden.
Nur Text wirkt sehr ermüdend mit der Zeit.
Wen das nicht stört, für den ist das Buch bestimmt eine Bereicherung zu den üblichen Reiseführern.

5.0 von 5 Sternen The perfect walking companion. 1. Mai 2011
Von Robert M. Knight - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
We visited Istanbul for the first time last Summer. Our hotel was located about 3 short blocks from the Blue Mosque, a perfect spot from which to launch a walking adventure. Our journey was enhanced by notes from good friends who had visited the same area 5 or 6 times. Their suggestions brought us to places we would have never found on our own. Strolling Through Istanbul serves the same purpose, only with much more detail and skillfully drawn maps to assist in finding locations in the maze that characterizes the entire City. Finding one unique, out of the way cultural/historic site not frequented by tourist hordes is well worth the price of this exceptional guide book.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Detailed Companion to Exploring Istanbul 13. Juni 2011
Von R. W. Salthouse - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
This guide is indispensable for anyone who wants to explore the city in depth and get off the normal tourist track. Of course, it still covers (in great detail) all of the must-see sights - Haghia Sophia, the Mosque of Sultan Ahmet (Blue Mosque), Topkap', and so forth. But this book goes far beyond those monuments, to show you exquisite small Ottoman mosques and Byzantine churches, plus the older, picturesque neighborhoods of Istanbul, all in a series of detailed walking tours, with very good maps. We particularly enjoyed following the walking tour of Üsküdar on the Asian side. The only drawback is the book's size; at nearly 500 pages, it is does not slip into a pocket or a purse. And you will need a conventional guidebook for lodgings. restaurants, and transportation, as well as an overall map of the city. Nevertheless, I highly recommend this book.

5.0 von 5 Sternen The most interesting history course you'll ever take on foot 7. April 2012
Von Paul Bianchi - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I bought the last edition of this book 15 years ago, when I was an expat teacher living in Istanbul. Some of my happiest memories of that time are of wandering through the back alleys of the city with this book, early on Saturday mornings before the bustle started. While there are plenty of badly-researched travel guides that give you (an often erroneous) overview, and lots of academic histories of the city big enough stop a truck, this book occupies a unique niche. This is a walking historical tour guide, written by two of the most enthusiastic and literate historians of the city, who actually have lived there most of their lives. Istanbul is not a "pretty" city, it is a chaotic mash-up of old and new, and a quick bus tour of the place may well leave you unmoved. But take a bit of time to learn the histories, the layers to this city, and it becomes an utterly magical, fascinating place. This book helps you do that.

I bought the new edition in anticipation of a trip this summer and revisiting some of those old walks, that the city has changed dramatically in the last decade, so a re-write is very welcome. This is not a book for a whirlwind two-day bus tour of the city. Like all worthwhile things, the book requires a bit of time and commitment (read at least parts of it before you go), a willingness to get off the beaten track and visit some out-of-the-way parts of the city, to risk getting lost now and again in ancient, unsigned streets. But, this is Istanbul, Constantinople, Byzantium - really, if you aren't willing to do that, why are you going at all?

5.0 von 5 Sternen Essential for Touristing in Istanbul 23. Mai 2011
Von Robert Cox - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
This book is priceless for historically-minded tourists who want to carry with them a detailed explanation of what they are looking at. It covers all the major sites in old Constantinople, and has information on many other historical sites as well. We carried it on our recent (April 2011) trip, and were well pleased with it. Minor drawbacks include somewhat murky maps -- it's a good idea to get a good map, available from various tourist info kiosks -- and some information that apparently wasn't updated from the first edition. But overall this book made our time in Istanbul much better. However, this book is not a practical book like Lonely Planet, Rough Guide, etc. -- you'll need one of those also to help you figure out how to get around, where to stay, and so on.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Best for the serious, long staying traveler. 28. Juli 2011
Von Peter A. Butzin - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
This is packed full of helpful, critical detail on all the sights (and then some) of the Old City. It is also packed full of history, although the organization is understandably by the geographic sector or street, rather than by chronology.

If I were visiting Istanbul for an extended period, or were an academic, the book would rate at least one more star.

However, the maps are next to useless, and there are few photographs. There is almost no information on local customs, restaurants and hotels.

The book is quite readable, and I enjoyed it, but when my wife and I visit Istanbul for a long weekend, I'm more likely to pack the Lonely Planet guide to Istanbul. That's because it fits in a hip pocket, includes fold out maps, lots of color pictures, and suggestions for restaurants, etc. On the other hand, if I have room for one more book, I may also pack "Strolling Through Istanbul" for all the detail that it includes about the tourist attractions.
