Travel Abroad: The Silk Road Leads to Istanbul, Turkey

- By

Princes’ Islands
Take a day trip via ferry from Istanbul proper to this archipelago of nine islands just off the coast in the Marmara Sea. Leave your rental car in the city; horse and cart, and service transport (ambulances, law enforcement, etc.) are the only transportation allowed.

Each island has its own slice of historical significance, but Lonely Planet recommends Heybeliada Island for the good restaurants, shopping, and beaches.
