The area
Neighbourhood: Besiktas
In Besiktas, skyscrapers compete with palaces for space in an upscale vista replete with hilly green parkland filling in the margins. Step into this rather wealthy neighbourhood and discover a rich mix of opportunities to shop, dine, and be entertained. For folks in search of urban buzz, not to mention a constant reminder of just how important Istanbul’s waterways are to its rich history, there's the frenetic Besiktas ferry terminal or the city’s most vibrant fish market to explore. For a timeout of metropolitan proportions, head to the bucolic Yildiz Park or the chic Bosphorus-side fishing village of Ortakoy. Attractions such as the grandiose Dolmabahce Palace and a bevy of other stately residences await admiration. To be sure, this large and not overly touristy swath of Istanbul yields plenty of pleasure for all.

I had missed joining some friends to visit the museum a few weeks ago and wanted to visit it even if I went on my own. There is no cost for the museum. It sits up on a hill in Bebek with the University right behind it. The kilims inside the museum/home are beautiful.

This museum was such a pleasure to visit. When you first arrive you are greeted by an amazing view of the Bosphorus, and they have placed benches for you to enjoy the view. The museum was actually a personal residence and you can see how its nickname came to be, Aşiyan meaning "birds nest". There was no entrance fee, and they provided an audio guide that had both Turkish and English options. The house has been completely renovated and it was done so beautifully. Highly recommend taking the small detour to see this place!
