Antwerp is Belgium's biggest secret. Certainly in Britain is not in any top 10 lists for weekend European destinations. But perhaps it should be. Certainly for art and culture, few cities rival it. And in the MAS Museum it has a Mecca-like building to draw in visitors.

Straddling tow continets, Istanbul is unique. With huge, historical temples like the Blue Mosque and Hagia Sophia, bustling markets, picturesque shopping districts, art and culture and the splendour of the Bosphorus waterway, there is nothing to dislike about the city that was once Constantinople. Excepet perhaps its traffic chaos.

 

There's an Istanbul slideshow here.
