Buy To Own

In this thoroughly modern city, the architecture, cuisine, and customs reflect Istanbul’s tumultuous past and the civilizations that tried to tame it. Explore the festive Grand Bazaar, more than 4,000 shops and two mosques spread across sixty streets. Turkish rugs tell stories of love and despair that are woven in colorful wool, but before he buys one, Rudy enlists the services of a personal shopper to locate the best shops, and to demonstrate the art of haggling. In addition to some of the world’s great buildings, such as Topkapi Palace, the Blue Mosque, and Hagia Sofia, Rudy goes off the beaten path to get steamed and scrubbed in a 16th century hamman, or public bath, and visits a hookah bar.
