    It was a pleasant one-day excursion from Istanbul to islands in the Marmara Sea. The Prince’s islands are at a distance of a 90-minute ferry ride from Istanbul, a delightful 90 minutes that afford an ever-changing panorama of this fantastic city. Go and seat on the ship top deck and watch the cityscape pass by while sipping on some freshly squeezed juice, or a brew of Turkish tea. You can either rent out a bicycle, hire a battery vehicle or just walk around. We chose to walk a little while, soaking in the quaint little bungalows and summer homes that line the small pathway up the hill, once you get past the busy dock area. The place is incredibly safe and that is a welcome change from the hustle-bustle of Istanbul. Make sure you carry along enough water as the trek is uphill and one will need to take regular breaks, that also give you the opportunity to turn back then look down the hill towards the distant Istanbul shores. There was a gorgeous church at an hour’s walk uphill along with a restaurant that has tremendous views. Closer to the dock there are plenty of restaurants serving fresh seafood, snacks, and ice cream. Save a day for yourself and definitely visit this place.
