Turkish Delight and Then Some!
Besides carpets, spices, and mosques, there is one last thing that you're guaranteed to see a lot of while visiting Istanbul, and that's candy stores selling Turkish delight. Take a break from your itinerary, and stop at one of the hundreds of shops selling these sweets. Get a small box with a hand-picked assortment to go and find a great vista to take in while consuming some delectable delicacies. I go for the rosewater-flavored Turkish delight and the baklava with pistachios.
