Istanbul, Turkey.

Topkapi Palace, Istanbul. The center of Ottoman might for almost 5 centuries, Topkapi Palace is a place of Oriental mystique, conjuring images of turbaned sultans and their harems, of pasas and eunuchs, and of an empire that wielded transcontinental influence at a time when the West was still living in the Dark Ages. The Treasury Room alone is enough to desensitize a woman to diamonds, rubies, and pearls.
