I’ve written a walking tour of Jewish heritage sites in Turkey, concentrating on Istanbul, with some information on Bursa, Izmir and Sardis, and brief mentions of other cities with histories of Jewish life such as Çanakkale, Manisa and Bergama.
The tour takes you step-by-step through the Jewish (or formerly Jewish) neighborhoods of Istanbul, Bursa and Izmir, describing the buildings and their importance to the Jewish communities in each city. Non-Jewish sitesof importance in the same neighborhoods are also mentioned so you can see everything on one walk and make the most of your travel time.
