Catch a bus from Taksim Square or Eminonu bus terminus heading for Sariyer or Emirgan and get off at Arnavutkoy on the Bosphorus.
There are some lovingly restored Ottoman houses and mansions to admire here, most of them painted in pastel shades and trimmed with intricate wooden fretwork.
Cafes line the back streets, so sit and linger over a coffee and a pastry.
From Arnavutkoy, continue walking northwards, past the fishing boats and pleasure cruisers bobbing on the water, until you reach Bebek, one of Istanbul's most affluent villages.
There are more than enough chic clothes and antique shops here to tempt visitors to part with their cash and work up an appetite for lunch.
Dine in style at the Poseidon. Here you can sip an aperitif and enjoy the splended view before savouring the menu of fresh fish.
Delve into history at the imposing Fortress of Europe, built in the 15th century as part of the Muslim conquest of Constantinople.
There is also a fantastic view of the Bosphorus from here.
Afterwards, walk around the delightful 19th century pavilions of nearby Emirgan Park with its hundreds of pine, fir and cypress trees and an ornamental lake.
