Sinop, Turkey, is best seen by walking. On the coast of the Black Sea 190 mi/305 km northeast of Ankara, it's a town of charming stores, small mosques, hidden tombs, parks and historical sites.
Visit the ruined Hellenistic temple and the site where Diogenes, the seeker of honest men, was born. Also see the Alaaddin Keykubat Mosque, ruins of the Serapis Greek temple and a Hittite citadel. Connected by sea with Istanbul, Sinop merits at least a half-day visit....
