We are planning a few days of our honeymoon in Istanbul. We would like to stay a night or two in each side of the city to get the full effect, so we will probably only spend 3-4 days here. We want to be immersed in the culture as much as possible! Any advice for hotels, restaurants, attractions, and shopping would be greatly appreciated! We would prefer hotels with amazing water views or a view of the town square or the Blue Mosque.
