Revue de presse

Both engaging and scholarly, this is a guide to Istanbul that has yet to be surpassed
Clover Stroud, Sunday Telegraph

...this book was the highlight of my art reading in 2011...its potted history is concise and excellent....this is no Lonely Planet guide steering us to the city s nightlife; instead it navigates us through beauty, tragedy and the redemption of the republic with serious, evocative, but lightly worn scholarship.
Adam Wilkinson, The Art Newspaper

'the best travel guide to Istanbul' --
The Times

this classic guidebook remains the pre-eminent reference to the city s most beloved, historical features...Written with love by people with a deep understanding of the city, this is the ideal travel companion for those with a thirst for architecture...intended for gaining a deep appreciation and understanding for the ancient city
Huffington Post

'a guide book that reads like a novel' --
New York Times

classic and still very useful...go step by step with the authors through various time periods of Istanbul. Their entertaining tidbits of information on bits of the city, including Topkapi, Pera and Galata and the Bosphorous itself, make this book far livelier than your standard hiking guide.' --
Maria Eliades, Time Out Istanbul

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The perfect walking companion. 1 mai 2011
Par Robert M. Knight - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
We visited Istanbul for the first time last Summer. Our hotel was located about 3 short blocks from the Blue Mosque, a perfect spot from which to launch a walking adventure. Our journey was enhanced by notes from good friends who had visited the same area 5 or 6 times. Their suggestions brought us to places we would have never found on our own. Strolling Through Istanbul serves the same purpose, only with much more detail and skillfully drawn maps to assist in finding locations in the maze that characterizes the entire City. Finding one unique, out of the way cultural/historic site not frequented by tourist hordes is well worth the price of this exceptional guide book.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Detailed Companion to Exploring Istanbul 13 juin 2011
Par R. W. Salthouse - Publié sur Amazon.com
This guide is indispensable for anyone who wants to explore the city in depth and get off the normal tourist track. Of course, it still covers (in great detail) all of the must-see sights - Haghia Sophia, the Mosque of Sultan Ahmet (Blue Mosque), Topkap', and so forth. But this book goes far beyond those monuments, to show you exquisite small Ottoman mosques and Byzantine churches, plus the older, picturesque neighborhoods of Istanbul, all in a series of detailed walking tours, with very good maps. We particularly enjoyed following the walking tour of Üsküdar on the Asian side. The only drawback is the book's size; at nearly 500 pages, it is does not slip into a pocket or a purse. And you will need a conventional guidebook for lodgings. restaurants, and transportation, as well as an overall map of the city. Nevertheless, I highly recommend this book.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Essential for Touristing in Istanbul 23 mai 2011
Par Robert Cox - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
This book is priceless for historically-minded tourists who want to carry with them a detailed explanation of what they are looking at. It covers all the major sites in old Constantinople, and has information on many other historical sites as well. We carried it on our recent (April 2011) trip, and were well pleased with it. Minor drawbacks include somewhat murky maps -- it's a good idea to get a good map, available from various tourist info kiosks -- and some information that apparently wasn't updated from the first edition. But overall this book made our time in Istanbul much better. However, this book is not a practical book like Lonely Planet, Rough Guide, etc. -- you'll need one of those also to help you figure out how to get around, where to stay, and so on.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The most interesting history course you'll ever take on foot 7 avril 2012
Par Paul Bianchi - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
I bought the last edition of this book 15 years ago, when I was an expat teacher living in Istanbul. Some of my happiest memories of that time are of wandering through the back alleys of the city with this book, early on Saturday mornings before the bustle started. While there are plenty of badly-researched travel guides that give you (an often erroneous) overview, and lots of academic histories of the city big enough stop a truck, this book occupies a unique niche. This is a walking historical tour guide, written by two of the most enthusiastic and literate historians of the city, who actually have lived there most of their lives. Istanbul is not a "pretty" city, it is a chaotic mash-up of old and new, and a quick bus tour of the place may well leave you unmoved. But take a bit of time to learn the histories, the layers to this city, and it becomes an utterly magical, fascinating place. This book helps you do that.

I bought the new edition in anticipation of a trip this summer and revisiting some of those old walks, that the city has changed dramatically in the last decade, so a re-write is very welcome. This is not a book for a whirlwind two-day bus tour of the city. Like all worthwhile things, the book requires a bit of time and commitment (read at least parts of it before you go), a willingness to get off the beaten track and visit some out-of-the-way parts of the city, to risk getting lost now and again in ancient, unsigned streets. But, this is Istanbul, Constantinople, Byzantium - really, if you aren't willing to do that, why are you going at all?

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Exacting, but drier than dust 11 mai 2013
Par Jennifer Grey - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
Depending on your point of view, Strolling Through Istanbul is either exhaustive or exhausting. With 23 strolls that stretch the breadth of the city, it's certainly thorough, but one wonders occasionally to what point. More than once the authors draw attention to some feature of interest only to note "however, the restoration has wantonly destroyed all that was original in the structure and it is now hardly worth even a passing mention" - which kind of makes you question why they bothered to mention it in the first place. That kind of thing, along with the space spent detailing an auction that hasn't been held for years and the authors' tendency to refer to absolutely everything as "charming," makes me think this classic guide is in need of another good edit.

Mostly dry scholastic detail, there are occasional narrative jewels tossed into the openings of the chapters, but overall this guide is really only worthwhile if you're actually toting it about as you walk and consulting it every other step, which would be something of a trick given that it's about five hundred pages and not precisely lightly bound. For my money, I found the Lonely Planet to offer more versatility if not the same depth, while being smaller and lighterweight.
