Worth a visit?
I'm planning a 17-day trip to Turkey that runs counter clockwise from Istanbul-Selcuk-Cappadocia-Safranbolu-Istanbul. Safranbolu is a recent addition to the itinerary, but it came at the cost of other cities in the Aegean/Mediterranean coast. I've read about Safranbolu's wonderfully restored and preserved Ottoman houses, and I wonder if they are worth a visit.
Appreciate your thoughts. Thanks!
You' re on right stage
I m from Turkey Safranbolu. Too many people visit Safranbolu from all over the world. But i think u must stay here for 2 or 3 days to live the historical atmosphere here. Here u can not find a comfortable hotel. Generally the hauses of us will be your home. It's not expensive. Ottoman houses'll enable you to live the lives that you can never live in your lifetime. Thank u for choosing Safranbolu. U can find me Cevrikkopru Restaurant 2 in Safranbolu old town. If you want i can help for your trip. ozkan Askın
