The Turkish metropolis Istanbul has more to offer than just old palaces and mosques. The city is modern and vibrant. If you want to do more than just check out the sights on your city break, head to the hotels in Besiktas. The district is located between the two major bridges over the Bosphorus, which connect Europe with Asia. The shopping streets of Etiler and the villa district in Besiktas show the lively life in modern Istanbul.
