The way out of the Old Town is verdant where it isn’t monumental. Delightful walk up to and through D’Amboise gate.

Glancing back at D’Amboise Gate, the moat, and the twin towers of the Suleimaniye Mosque and the Clock Tower. (The latter is branded as Mediaeval and Venetian, but its current incarnation dates from 1852.)

Once you’re free of the theme park, a nice green walk takes you to what used to be the Royal Constabulary College. Now, it’s the Humanities building of the University of the Aegean, where I’ve just spent a wonderful one and half hours getting updates from Eleni Karantzola on her research programme. She truly has a great thing going here with her team.
