From Rome to Istanbul: A Guide to Mediterranean Cruises
The Galata Tower called Christea Turris by the Genoese is a medieval stone tower in the Galata/Karaköy quarter of Istanbul, Turkey, just to the north of the Golden Horn. One of the city's most striking landmarks, it is a high, cone-capped cylinder that dominates the skyline and offers a panoramic vista of Old Istanbul and its environs.
Baklava (Turkey). 'One of the most delicate desserts on the planet, baklava is carefully crafted from gossamer-thin sheets of yufka (filo pastry). Fold in a filling of finely chopped pistachio or walnuts, layer with melted butter and drown the whole shebang in syrup to create a mid-afternoon snack perfect with a robust Turkish coffee.' http://www.lonelyplanet.com/turkey
