Cornucopia’s travel guide

Arnavutköy


No village shelters so much wealth and modest means. Glitz to gecekondu both fill the hilly back lanes, if no longer fragrant with Arnavutköy strawberries, Arnavutköy is still worth a stroll.

Sadly Mayor Dalan made the heinous error of building a road on stilts in front of the picturesque row of yalıs so atmospherically captured by Paul Veysseyre in the 1970s.

What you will see

No village is packed with such a range of wealth and modesty, from glitz to gecekondu.
