Hi @stephwood! TBH, Istanbul is not the safest city I have visited. There were a few incidents of harassment, where the local men catcalled me. During one dinner, a server tried to get my number and irritated me to a point that I had to rush out from the restaurant... so yeah, if you can go to Istanbul with a companion (man or a woman, doesn't matter), it'll be better than visiting the city alone.

Did you find Istanbul quite safe? I've always wanted to visit as well as many other places in Turkey but haven't heard the best stories so always put it off.

Great itinerary! I loved just wandering the streets when I went to Istanbul, so much culture to soak up!!
