you will find them all over naples in italy, piraeus in greece, and in istanbul there is endless supply!! however, be careful in italy and greece, as they are EU member states, which have strict business ethics laws, and whilst it's not illegal for them to sell knockoffs, it's illegal to buy them. makes no sense i know, but that's how it is. i've just come from 4 months on a european run, have heard of many problems in italy and greece, but never any from turkey. the grand bazzar is AMAZING, and you can buy great knockoffs at a good price, and they're usually pretty good quality too.
