Istanbul advice

Jump to last reply

My partner and I are trying to book a vacation during his February break and have decided to go to one city in Europe for what would be a seven day trip. Right now our options are Rome, Madrid or Istanbul. All seem to be comparably priced and we can get nonstops to all of them through Toronto.

I've done research about all three of these cities at various points in the past couple of years. Istanbul intrigues me greatly but also makes me the most nervous. Any thoughts or comments about two gay American guys traveling there. I know the Muslim culture isn't known for their enthusiasm for homosexuality but we are pretty low key.

Not sure what exactly I am asking- maybe for some reassurance that it will be safe and comfortable for us to visit.

Beyond that, any advice on good areas to stay in would be appreciated (preferably areas where restaurants, markets, shopping is all within walking distance)

Thanks
