- What’s On
The great poet Constantine Cavafy so infinitely intimately associated with Alexandria spent three years as a young man in Yeniköy. His mother was the daughter of a Constantinopolitan diamond merchant from Yeniköy, George Photiadis, and it was here, in 1882, when he lent her his house there, that the 19-year-old poet wrote his first poetry in English, French and Greek. His bust now stands in the shadow of the the rather beautiful, and recently restored Aya Panaia Church opposite the Yeniköy İskele.
